i recently bought some H&R springs off of someone on here (got a great deal) he said they were for a 16v but by the H&R website the numbers on them are for the 8v. I was wondering if anyone knew the difference and if i could still use these. i'm not mad or anything because i got such a great deal just want to know if these will fit on a 16v.
the numbers on them are 54743 F and 084043 R.
Thanks

Re: spring question (speedingticket g60)

The rears should be the same but since the 16v motor is heavier than the 8v, the fronts should be a bit stiffer. If you use 8v springs, the car will be a bit lower in the front and the front will ride softer (due to the extra weight) than the rears which will probably actually decrease understeer.
