What are you talking about? I didn't ask for stock V8 springs... if I wanted stock V8 springs I'd pillage my parts stash for the many sets I have. V8 stock springs will actually raise the car a bit.

 True in that the V8 is a bit heavier than a 200 20v

 If I wanted a setup for track I'd just put my 2B front & rear coilovers with Koni adjustables & 750/800lb spring rates from my Black V8 5sp mit 4.2 on my 200 20vt. But all I want is a used set from eather a V8 or a //scar :-)
