    Will 4 pot lowering springs fit a straight 6

    As the title found some springs for a 4 pot local to me which means I could get them fitted over the weekend along with other jobs I'm doing but would they fit, would it be lower than the springs should be basically its the ease of them being local cheap enough and could get a few jobs done in one looking for a quick answer please guys cheers for any help

    yes but you would be mad to fit them due to the extra weight of the six pot
