I noticed a set of Superlows that looked nearly new in the wreckers today. And they're already off the car. Only thing is, they're off a VS Statesman. I noticed the front struts attatch to the body with a different number of bolts to a VN, but does anyone know if the springs themselves will fit on my S1 VN?

Front springs from VS arent compatible with VN.

Rear from VS will fit a VN though but as its off a Stato im guessing its the IRS springs which means the rear springs wont fit either.

So no they wont fit, front or rear. Bad luck man

Mate, did you even make it past primary school?

Exsausts?
Illeagle?
Condem?
No?
There?

Also, talk about looking 'tuff' on a computer, oh ma gawd uleh 'ov' is like fully sick mate, its full on hectic mate, fully luv it mate

Its exactly people like Keesh that cut their springs. If you wanna be like this idiot, then go ahead and cut your springs. Be a cheap loser with no insurance and a danger to yourself and those around you and treat your car like a peice of ****.

But if you dont wanna be an ignorant loser, then spend the little money it costs for performance springs and improve your cars ride and handling :)

I bought a car with cut springs once! Changed the suspension back to standard after about a week of owning the car because it understeered like mad and scared the **** out of me. I wouldn't go down the spring cutting road after what I experienced with that car!

My fronts are cut. Have no problems at all. Been cut for years now. But getting superlows when my tax comes back. The springs are trapped and everything so there is no way they can come out or anything. My mums got a vn with stock ride height suspension and mine handles 10 times better. So when i get my new superlows in the front it should be 20times better:) But thats just my experiance.

Keesh you are 18 need to live first before giving such stupid advice.Listen to others people advice.Im double your age and owned heaps of cars.Cut springs loose their strength and their tension and do not do what they are supposed to do.Ive had cut,standard and properly lowered springs and i know cut CAN be dangerous.Some laws regarding modification are stupid,we all know that,but we are talking about dangerous mods.
All Shortstuff was asking was if the springs would fit into his VN and they wont.It had nothing to do what you are crapping on about.
