hey,
ive been searching around and ive found some guy selling the right lowering stuff i need and he lives in the same town as me. only problem is his front springs are for a V8 and i own a V6, anyway i was wondering if they would work okay, i was told to go a step higher in the front and i figured if these springs are SL in ass and SL V8 in front, due to the spring not receiving as much pressure from the size of my motor, it would sit up a tad more, keeping it even?

im really keen on buying this and being so easy to get is perfect, can someone please give me some advice. cheers.

Spring rates will be too stiff at the front. Rears should be fine.

Front end will be stiff and the rear will be soft which will tend to "push" and understeer thru corners. Won't turn in as well and tend to run wide on apexes.
