I have the 2.5 and when I purchased the megan racing springs the site said they were for a 2.0 but the weight difference between the ls and fs is only like 100lbs. The way my car sat after installing them was good even though the rear was slightly higher but I put a ton of weight in the trunk to make it sit level and I’m hoping if I leave it in there long enough the springs will sag to make it sit closer to level.

The fs and kl use the same suspension components. With the exception of the fs/base model having drums instead of rear disc brakes... the fs typically sits higher in the front than a kl because of the difference in engine weight described above. As for the back sitting higher, most manufacturers have recommendations to allow their springs to settle and that guidance should be followed.

It's what I figured, but I was iffy on the engine weight difference. From what I can tell almost every brand sits slightly higher in the rear. I saw someone suggestion to cut one of the "dead" coils off, but I'm not messing with that stuff.

Thanks for answer guys

I bought my springs used but they were ordered at 2.5" front and 2.75" drops. I added escort strut mounts up front for more drop because I like it a tad lower up front
