Depends HOW low u go, i went superlows in my old NF, (EF style susp) and no issues unless i had 3 ppl in the back, then i could feel a little vibration at 40-60km/hr while not under load..

yeah the vibrations do occur, alot of people tend to think its the change in pinion angle which causes this. I am currently exploring several options to remedy the pinon angle in my GLi. Still the best money i have spent on the car. Changes the way it feels dramatically, wonder why ford didn't make them like that from factory.

XR~ADZ what brand springs and shocks you got?

Ronin - I got King Springs all round (superlows) and Monroe Shocks (cant remember which ones tho.)
Had my suspension done about 4 years ago now?

A mate of mine re-sprayed the black bumper inserts on his white EF a very close color to the Blueprint from the AU/BA series. That looked really good on white.

A cool custom plate would look very nice externally as well.

I think some dash mods ie white face dials, and colored LED's and silver cluster surround are real good WOW factors,

Just a few ideas aside mags, suspension, and engine stuff.

Extractors and 2 1/2, and maybe a cam. oh and 5 speed

Would be funny if a car load of blokes pull up beside you for abit of a look ( I DONT DO THAT OF a*** LOL) and you give them the finger and drop it back in 3rd and leave there a*** behind

Venom front end would look good 2

Further to the mods to jazz up your falcon..

1st: Decent wheels, at least 17"
2nd: Lowering, I'd suggest superlows all round like mine, last measure by police i was 2.5m above the legal limit
3rd: Tint
4th: Exhaust
5th: Venom bodykit as per previous suggestion, don't spoil it with a boot spoiler. Low, clean loud, heaps nicer.

Sweet, need more chicks into Fords these days ^^,
Anyways, heres my list.
1) Rims - 17" FTR's are a nice start.
2) Suspension - Lower it. Also if you want it not to handle like a tank, get some nice swaybars onto it
3) Exhaust - Preferably 2.5" Mandrel Bent Lukey (If possible) and some nice Pacemaker headers (again if possible). Add a nice dumpy looking 3" tip on the end.
5) Add nice 20 - 35 % tint. Shouldnt get too hassled by the police.

Thats the basics i'd say.

Then you get you're self a nice EL XR kit with the Twin Lights - minus the rear spoiler (wing).
Colour code everything in white. Update the rims to you're preferance.
Then you'll be putting most cars to shame :)

OR - Just copy Fuzions car. He's set a benchmark for white Fords id say :P

Either way, GL in you're decision making. Keep us updated. Pics are a must :twisted:
