hey guys, just bought a BA XR6. wondering if anyone has lowered it. im wanting to put king XR lows on it which should take it to about an inch lower from stock. has anyone done this and if they have did they encounter any problems.

also does the XR6 come with LSD stock or is it optional. and how do i find out if i have it without arking it up. any help would be appreciated.

Yes the XR6 should come standard with a 3.45:1 LSD assuming its the same ratio as the E and A series XR's

Dude the cars are already damn low. my dad sometimes has trouble getting out of our driveway and its not steep, just the guttering sometimes hits the mud spats, and the front splitter. He has nearly lost that a few times. But yeah the xrs do looks wicked'er when lowered so yeah.

yeah i know it is already low. i sometimes have a bit of trouble of when im not careful. but to me the 1 and a half inch gap between the gaurd and the tyre looks too much. just really wanted to know how much of a hassel it is to drive being 1 inch lower.

After further research, i stand corrected. And i agree, no LSD in an XR really sucks
