transferring 2010 v8 ss springs to 2011 v6?

the question on the title says it all but i was wondering would i have to change the LS struts to fit the SS springs on to them or would they just fit? please let me know as i'm waiting to get them installed like tomorrow... Thank u guys

I think you will be ok. Many aftermarket drop spring companies sell v8 and v6 springs and they are exactly the same springs. So this leads me to believe your V6 struts and shocks will fit the new v8 springs.

I got a hold of V8 struts/shocks and springs. But no upper perches. I too hope the v8 springs will fit my v6 perches.

What are the V8 springs gonna do for you? Lower? Better handling?

So you installed V8 springs and V8 sways? Was there anything additional parts needed or special mods to get them to fit?

yes bandier thats correct, no special part or special mods were needed, the guy who i got the sways from he sold me them with the endlinks so now i got 2 pairs of endlinks-always nice to have endlinks laying around but yea nothing special needed you can just order the springs and sways itself

That's great. I cannot wait to get mine on. Good to hear the v8 springs fit the v6 struts/shocks.
