Can I drop a set of AU XR8 springs into my Forte to lower it an inch?

Thanks Jarrett!

Yep, except you can only use the front springs, as the XR8, would have IRS, and you have a live axel.

well yes the springs will fit
if he has i6 forte the car will actually be raised not lowered!
now if it is a v8 forte then the xr8 springs will lower it

The V8 engines are heavier than the I6's, so they'll push down or condense the spring more...
