The V8 Springs are a lot stronger, much higher rate,  to deal with 
the extra wieght from the 
V8.  This is for say a true mid mount or front engine.   My Toro V8 has 
them added by the previous owner, and the ride is super harsh, as it does 
not have the extra weight on the front, since the engine sits so far back. 
I was just noticing this at lunch driving aroung, teeth jarring.  Sometime 
I will swap them out.
