He is correct. I misread and thought we were talking about a V8. There will be abour 1/4 inch difference in the drop on a V6 because of the weight. So the front would be looking at 3/4.

Good catch.

This would be a good start to your handling needs. Down the line if you are looking to improve your handling evern more you could start looking at swaybards, shocks/struts, etc.

PM if you are looking for any additional questions.

Thank You
TJ

So it would be 3/4ths in the front and about 1 1/4th in the rear?
Thanks TJ

No the rear would drop too. The V6 would sit between stock and a V8. The backend would be a little less than 1/4 difference.

I don't have the exact data with me on the rear end, but knowing it would sit between stock and a v8 with 3/4 drop in the front and around 1 or so in the back.

Thanks
TJ

I have the UPR Pro Series springs on my 2006. They improved the looks & handling.
