get spring compressors and heat the springs up with the oxy/acetalene torch (preferably a 2-man job) get one to operate the torch and one to wind the spring compressors down. Some people would think this is dodgy, but if you do it right it isn't. If you plan to do this at all, what ever you do don't cool the springs off with water.. You'll shock the metal and damage the structural integrity. Let them cool off by themselves (1-2 hours or so)

Just make sure your confident in doing the procedure otherwise you will ruin your springs. Ive had the springs in the car for about a year now and they are still strong as.

Ssl's aren't as bad as what ya might think. If u want it to looked lower get the ssl's they make a big difference. Check out my pics of the BF xr6 with ssl's the guard sits a few mm over the tire without having to roll the guards and it looks sexy as!! Me and a mate compressed his sl's and it defo is a 2 man job its too tricky to do it on ya own. Any of u guys know how high the lowest point of ur car is allowed to be? My rear resinator is the lowest point and its 85mm from the ground on the ssl's... and I got pulled over for an rbt the other night and the copper was a young guy and I watched him run his hand between the tire and the guard and come back and said low, but not to low, it looks good and I just basically laughed in his face coz im pretty sure its way too low lol then we got talking about his little rice burner. Was the most random convo I've ever had with someone lol

I'm not 100% sure but just going by what mates have said it's 100mm in WA. or a coke can?
My car at the lowest point (front cross member) only just fits over a coke sideways. Getting it up on the hoist requires two fairly long bits of wood. Very bad in shopping centres and can't turn and go up a curb too hard otherwise it will do a fender bender at the front.

yeh thankfully havent "fender bendered" yet lol. But running 19's with all 4 guards rolled and tyres still scrape guards when turning up curbs too fast. When wheels are straight cant run fingers between the tyres and guards lol.

Rear is very low, Also have a 60L gas tank and 2 subs in a twin box + spare tyre. Rear quarters tyre tuck down to the rims with two average size people in the back.

um thats on 19's. not hard to do. how about when mine had 15" and was 65mm off the ground, with a full car load it tucked all the tyre on 15"!

and now it's in 17" and 99mm off the ground. with a full car load it tucks all the tyre
