No you can't mix & match the earlier & later springs & struts. If you want to use the earlier '00-'05 springs/ struts you need to Get the ''Omni kit'' from Massive performance, a vender in here. Go to the vender section. I'd also get a strut that works w/ those lowering springs too.

I'm not sure on that Felix, I know the spring tops changed for '05-'07 and again for '08-'11, not so sure for the spring bases where they contact the struts.

Double check the diameter of the spring base vs. the '08's to be sure, if they're the same the '05 top hats & strut bearings are what's needed for the swap.

The '06+ springs are a tapered w/ a pigtail at the bottom. Look at the '06+ strut spring seat. The op will need to use the earlier struts w/ those earlier springs.

Aha, so it's the '06-'07 springs only that will update to use on '08-'11.

Tx for clearing that up!


'05 gets lumped in with '06-'07 for all but the strut diameter so often I thought 5-7 springs were the same.

Roger, I ran into that yrs ago, when my buddy bought a early '06 & was doing springs.
