Are you trying to raise the car?

I'm not 100% sure, but the sprig rates on the gt500 are for the heavier gt500, our cars are about 400 lbs lighter.
Also, I don't think they'll fit.

A good used GT suspension would be a great upgrade for our V6's if your looking for a budget upgrade. The GT owners place their parts on ebay as well as the classifieds here all the time.

The front springs will lift the front end due to the gt500 having a heavier motor

I haven't installed them yet but I have gt500 shocks and struts and GT lowering springs. And I was doing a test fit in front and they will fit for that part. Reason why I didn't put them on was I'm waiting to get my PH bar and C/C plates before my drop.

Ummm. I believe they are SR springs. 2inch drop all around. But I'm guessing since they're GT springs they won't go that low. Maybe 1.7 drop?

Right on thanks for all of the feedback. Based on the posts I went away from the gt500 suspension and got a GT Track Pack take off quite cheap, I'm excited for them to come in. S/N, will I need an adjustable pan hard.

I just bought the SR springs and they drop 1.5 inches.

How's your rear end?? Did it shift any to the right or left?
