Do Vert Springs have diff part No. to the Coupe

Can someone answer this question.

Because the Vert is some 250kg heavier than the coupe are the springs difference in both front and rear or just the rear only?

Ok I found the Eibach springs for the vert, just released, the part number is 20101.140. The drop for the front is 1" and the rear is .6.

The springs for the coupe which have been out for a while are part number20100.140, front drops .8" and the rear drops .6".

Interesting they are now droping the front by 1" on the vert, the vert must sit a little higher to start off with!

Thanks

I believe the vert sits a bit higher than the coupe so when you drop the car, it will give you a lower drop. However, in the end, both should end up at about the same ride height. The same thing is true about sport and non-sport suspension equipped vehicles.
