Hi Guys

I wanna lower my falcon, Is there any preferred size I have to lower it to or not. I wanna go a inch all round or is 2 inches all round better.

Any help would be great.

Cheers

Wrong forum champ... Should post in the Gearbox, suspension and driveline forum. Im sure the mods will get around to moving it for you.

In the mean time, its really up to you how low you go. Probably lows all round would be about xr height, and if you go lower than that you'll need to change the shocks. I've been looking into lowering mine and thinking of going superlows all round with shortened shocks.

Another thing to note, if your rolling on big wheels and lower it too low, you'll find you'll scrub out the inside of your wheels. This can be countered with a camber kit.

The tyre factory quoted me $700 for shocks and springs on all for corners installed.

I've got 19's. Alot of people run 20's as they fill the wheel arch nicer... personally i find the ride quality a little rough. 19's are bad enough with grandpa spec suspension.

I would go 19's on superlows. No camber kit Really required, but you'll find you may scrub the insides out a bit. Whatever wheels you get ensure you get decent tyres. Its coming into winter and wheel and tyre packages generally come with s**t tyres. Get better ones or you'll be all over the road... in a bad way!

20's would look tough though! haha
