Default SSE/SSEi springs in a SE/SLE

I have heard that the springs in a SSE/SSEi are 1" shorter than in a SE/SLE. IS this true? I parked my old 1992 SE next to a 1993 SSEi once and I noticed the SSEi looked like it wasn't as high as mine. The ground was as level as could be so it wasn't a unlevel ground situation.
If this is true I'd like to put the one'* from one of my SSE parts cars on my SLE. Does anyone have any SE and SSE/SSEi springs laying around to compare?

I just put new springs and shocks on my car. I got the springs from domestic Performance. I have an SE that had apparently came from the factory with the SSEI springs on it, being a special order car. Ty made me a one off set of Moog springs and it lowered me by 11/2 inchs. Drop speedguy out a PM and he can help you out.
