Default Searched, Couldn't find for sure answer GT springs on N/A

Someone wants to purchase my stock gt springs for their 01 N/A PT. WIll they fit, and will it lower, raise, or make no difference in the ride height? Thanks in advance.

i use the autozone website for crap like this. they have the parts listed as two different part numbers from the same manufacturer(TRW). they do not list spring rates for the PT(they do for most cars), but all the given specs match except for the uncompressed spring height. the GT springs are listed as 0.748" taller.

the gt are the 14.09" in this pic.

This is one of those things where there is a lot of misinformation on the web. While many add aftermarket springs which are interchangeable, few try swapping around OEM springs.

But I am pretty sure that all the 1st Gen springs are in fact interchangeable though there may be minor differences. It's the front sway bar and steering knuckles that can differ along with differences in turbo front brakes. Some like Myckee that has actually swapped these needs to chime in to confirm this.

Maybe the spring perch on the strut is different, and that is why the GT springs are longer?! If that is the case, would it "lift" the non turbo models?
