help with springs

im trying to buy springs, have a great dealon some but also a question. has anyone put h&r sport springs for an I4 on a V6? or are they the same thing? i cant seem to figure it out, i just want to make sure im not going to be bottomed out in the front because of the extra weight of the motor. thanks!

Do yourself a favor and just buy real coilovers, forget spring/shock combos. I did this because I was in a budget crunch and ended up spending more by the time I decided to get a set of used coilovers.

TO answer your question, look at the part numbers for the v6 vs the i4. USUALLY they are different because the v6 has more weight in the front, I think it would sag more in the front with i4 springs.

coilovers are out of the question, too expensive. my car has 250000 miles on it i dont want to slam it. i have monroe sense tracs ordered BC i have 3 blown struts. but yea im pretty sure they are different, has anyone tried it? ive heard of people going vice versa with other setups but im just wondering if anyone has done it with the H&R sports.

Some spring companies use the same spring for both but usually you are better off going with the manufacturer's recommendations. The extra weight might be an issue if the spring isn't rated for it.
