Paging BMR! V6 1.2 rear springs?

Guys, would they fit an SS?

I'd like to explore doing 1.0 front and 1.2 rear.

Colt on here has this drop setup on his car, though I'm guessing the spring rate for the fronts would be different given the increased weight of the V8 engine?

Thanks!

I was wondering the same. I can't imagine there being much, if any, weight difference in the back of a V8 vs. V6.

Everyone could have three choices then

Hey John, Yes, the V-6 rear springs will fit in the rear of a V-8 car. The V-6 springs have a slightly longer free length than the V-8 springs, but the spring rate is 30 lbs. less, so it should even out. We have not tested the 1.4" or 1.2" springs in the rear with 1.0" springs up front, so I can't really give you a good idea of what it is going to look like. Personally, I think this guy's picture of 1.0" all the way around looks pretty level to me, but judging a 0.2" or 0.4" difference in the rear by eyeball is going to be difficult anyway.

Thanks Keith, I have too much rake, 2.5 rear and 2.0 front. Colt posted pics in another thread and the stance was great....
