I'd like about maybe an inch of wheel clearance or so. I also think I want the back up higher than the front.

If those are gt springs youll have to cut them thanks to the spring rate. There are about a half dozen lowering threads from the last month or so...feel free to search them and see what has been used. Whether you buy springs or cut your stockers we will help out where we can.

Yes...they will fit both but GT springs have a higher rate for the weight difference... so the drop isnt the same which is why i said they may need cutting

I have GT springs on mine and I love them. The measurement for how low it will go is from a GTs weight. Since the v6 is much lighter than the GT, it might not lower it as much as a GT. the rear will be the same but it won't lower it as much in the front. For example if the springs lower a GT 1.5 in the front. It would lower a v6 1.2-1.4. There really is not that much of a difference

I ran 1" wheel spacers in the rear with a 1.75 ish drop....couple of speed bumps or inclines and buy buy tires. I sliced em both to hell on the fenders. So the spacers were given away.

I would check your clearences before driving after getting everything together. You could also have your fenders rolled to prevent any issues with steep inclines.

Im not a fan of wheel spacers, I just bought a wider wheel and cut out the middle man.
