Default V6 springs VS Ws6 Springs

Will V6 springs make my car set higher than my Ws6 factory springs?

Is the WS6 rear springs stiffer than a trans am spring?

I am 28.5 on rear driver ride heighth and 28 on the passenger rear. The half inch difference is common on these cars I know, but the 28.5 seems a bit high. Wonder what others have for a ride heighth?

After looking at other pics of stock susp cars I'm not no higher. I guess it just seems to be higher because I was use to the BMR rear lowering springs 1 1/2 drop they gave me. The V6 springs just went on for the track anyway.

"WS6 springs" are no different than the same year Trans Am springs.
