AU springs on EA?

Will the AU front lowered (king) springs fit on an EA? Heard the back springs do for non IRS models.

Don't quote me I'm sure that one end fits but the other doesn't but I'm sure one does.

Re: AU springs on EA?

Front end won't as AU springs are tapered.
Rears will physically fit, though rates may be different.

Au rear springs fitted to an EB with gas tank lowered the EB rear by 2" and gives a soft ride.Fronts won't fit otherwise I would have swapped them as well.

Re: AU springs on EA?

so would a set of AU SLs be the same height as EA SL, or would they give an uneven height?

Mate there is no need to be so harsh, he is just asking a legitimate question.
