Wanting to lower my XR6 Sedan on SL King Springs, 50mm drop. Will I need shortened struts and rear shocks? If so, what do people recommend?

Dont do it.
Leave it the way it is. You lower it and you will be scrubbing everywhere and f**k underneath your car.
XR height is ideal on a B series.

They are a decent height, although I wan't a more aggressive look and the benefits of a lower center of gravity and better handling, It's going to be tracked after all

agreed, the height on the B series is sweet, Having said that, if i was to drop the height i wouldn't drop 50mm, Maybe 25mm at the most and add stiffer sway-bars.

Okay, thank you for your suggestion. Sway bars were something I had thought about, what would you suggest?
