I actually love the low front high a*** look on wagons. But it's a simple matter to fit blocks.

Fit the fronts and drive it for a couple of weeks so the springs settle, then measure how much you want to drop the rear.

2 options for the rear:

1. Fit reset leaf springs.
These can be either King Springs "Low" Leaf to match the front coils
or some XR ute springs.

2. Fit Lowering Blocks
See the following thread for more info on blocks...

1 1/2" AFAIK is the block size your after. 2" and supoosebly there's a huge chance of your tailshaft bottoming out on the bottom of the car (according to Whiteline).

Personally I went with matched King Spring leaf springs for my wagon.
