Just wondering because i want to put some coilovers in the front and am quite confused that some products suit both vr/vs and vt/vy/vx etc and some say that they suit vt/vy/vx only?

They look the same. Can someone clarify?

Comes down to the different weights of the car.. So one spring from a vs will drop it 30mm, whereas a vt spring in vs will only drop it 20mm due to the vs being lighter than the vt.

Im not worried about the springs etc as I am going fully adjustable coilovers, which are a whole different strut. Im mainly wondering about the 2 bolt holes for the bottom of strut and the mounting into the top plate.

Im 99% sure they'd be the same

There the same 100% as I have taken struts out of a vt and bolted them into a vs.
