    Yep i think so mate.. I thought that all irs springs except VE were interchangable.

    Though, they may be fair bit lower in a vy because vy's are heavier.

    Cheers.

    I think they will fit however I don't know if you will achieve the desired result due the different weights of the 2 vehicles.

    It can't hurt to try though as it's an easy swap. Jack up the rear of the car until just before the rear wheels lift and undo the lower shock mount and then continue to jack up the rear end (make sure the hand brake is off and the front wheels are chocked properly). you might need to force the hub down a little to get the old springs out, fit the new springs, lower the rear until the shock lines up the mount and put the bolts back in but don't tighten all the way, drop the car onto the ground and tighten the lower shock bolts fully and you are done.
