Hey all, i put V8 SL king springs in my V6 commodore and it seems more bouncy and uncomfortable ride wise compared to my mates who have king springs SL for a V6.
Is my ride more uncomfortable and bouncy because the springs are V8?
Since the springs are for a heavier car, eg a V8, i would be guessing that with the lesser weight of the V6 that it would be a bit lighter and probably feel bouncier.
As above^^ V8 springs are stiffer than V6 ones due to the extra weight/power
how much did it cost to install?
i put them in myself. springs i picked up for 150$.. if you just want springs in plus labour theres a place in thomastown that does it for 380$
if you want a total 'lowering' of your car, e.g. springs and labour, costs $350 - $400 around Eastern suburbs...i.e. Tyre Factory. Ace Exhausts etc etc etc.
And yeah Dean, V8 springs are bouncier and different to V6 one's due to extra weight. So your car will (and does) sit higher as opposed to mine having V6 Super Lows. And will obviously be bouncier as well. Change to V6 ones ASAP!

god damn fk i knew i would regret buying V8 ones.. mmmmmmmm so cbf changing the fronts.. eh a few cans and it should b right.. changing the fronts is like a damn puzzle
V8 ones wont do any harm mate, they will just be a little stiffer that the 6 one... you know the best answer to your problem..... take the V6 out and put a V8 in!! problem solved ;-) lol
I still reccomend changing it mate, you will love it even more.

I recommend changing your engine to a V8 you will LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE it even more lol
What condition are the front shocks in? stuffed/worn shocks will give a crap ride.. one of the best mods you can do is NEW SHOCKS .. KYB, Koni and Bilstein.
