Hey mate,
If you do a quick search you will find a million threads with this sort of info in it and people asking the exact same questions.
But to answer your question, IMO I reckon normal lowered springs with 18" wheels look nice on the old boxcars. Although they are not much lower than the XR springs. Superlows look better but with an XR6, if you've got the XR lips/skirts, you are going to be scraping on a fair few things. It also depends on what shockers you're going to be using with the springs.

haha, no probs. You're probably better off just going normal lowered springs with standard length shockers. If you want to go Superlows, or even Ultralows, you should get a set of shortened shockers. Heaps nicer ride and a longer life for your shocks.
