A couple of my mates both have their BA's on ultra lows.
You seem to need to sit them on Ultra's to make them sit low at all.
One of them had the rear springs compressed cause it still wasn't low enough with his 18's on it.
I'll see if i can dig up a pic, but it still isn't really all that low.

In my signature thats a photochop. I'm not sure what its on hey, it could be XR springs or they could be standard. The guy at the tyre shop did some measurements and he said it was lower than his GTP. My car had XR 17's on it when i bought it so maybe it had the springs too.

Heres a pic of how it sits normally.

Go ultras and get the rears compressed a bit more.
Like EL XR8 said, they dont look that low on them.
You having the SR kit might help, but they dont tuck the rubber up into the guards that well.
Your 20s might help there though!

They are low as f**k underneath but LOL, stay away from speed bumps!

Ride: BA Falcon XT

I have super lows on my XT, and they are NOT low at all, when I have done more performance mods I will be changing them to ultra low king springs.

OK so what are the different rating..I take it tehy are (for and XT)

Lows = XR height
Super Lows = XR height less 20cm
SSL's - how low?
Ultra Lows - how low?

I'm starting to learn guys...ha ha

Do you want to go to shopping centres? cinemas? car parks of any description? have ppl in the back of the car? its ok to look fully sik, but you pay the price, unless you put in ultra hard shocks, which will give a s**t ride, i got lows in mine and i gotta be careful where i go.

So if you have lows in a Fairlane that would be the same height as a standard XR6. Is that right?, unless the fairlane has the same springs as the XR as standard

Ride: Manual EL XR6

The security guard at work owns this, he's got ultra lows, and they weren't low enough with the 20's so he had the springs in the rear compressed another inch.

Cheers,
Jason
