The obvious difference in the part numbers is between the 4 cylinder cars
and the 6 cylinder cars.  I assume that's because of the weight
I'm not looking for concours quality.  I'll be using a Ford 302 engine.  It
will be a resto mod.  I want to know if the length, width or hole size are
any different that will prohibit me from using my 100/6 springs.   I don't
care about spring material thickness, the number of leaves, or clips or
anything else visual.

Calling the vendors and asking them if they know what the difference is
between these springs?  Of course they will tell me they're different
because they have different part numbers.   Surely someone on the list must
already know this.
