Lowering springs

Ok guys I want to lower my 01 v6 convertible and I've seen springs that are for coupes and convertibles. What is the difference?

I think it just has to do with weight but not for sure

Re: Lowering springs

I personally wouldnt be comfortable buying a generic set from amazon or ebay. If your gonna try to save money by going to one of those sites i'd play it safe and buy a name brand, just me.

Yeah plus ones from say, American Muscle, are backed up by reviews from fellow pony riders that are using the springs. I would drop the extra as well, especially where the ride is concerned. Unless you find someone who bought nice after market springs but wants to swap em out and will give you a good deal.

Re: Lowering springs

there isnt much of a difference, the vert is about 120lbs heavier and mostly over the rear end so the rear spring might be a tad taller to fix this~

I have H&R race and the springs are the same for coupe/vert and both lower about the same.

For my vert I left out one front isolator (oem isolators just rubber rings) and for the rear I left both in~

Mostly its not a big deal

Re: Lowering springs

the verts might be heavier, but 120lbs isnt going to make that much of a difference. and your not going to see much a difference in either.
