Yeah, how do you lower it in the front? want to do it on the cheap although now is the time when a full bottle of wine should handy so i can go do stupid stuff to make it look good but the family is home :cry:


and BUMP, need this poll to continue running

1.5" lowering blocks are on their way to me though

Can you get me a side-on pic of your car?

i might just do it bogan style and see how the back looks with the 1.5" blocks in the back before i try to "cut" the front


i dont mean cut, i mean have it professionally lowered with the use of an angle grinder :lol:

Don't cut springs mate, you're just asking for trouble. I'll check my boxcar parts store. I'm pretty sure I have a set of front low's on monroe struts I can part with at a budget price :wink:

Please check when you have a chance, may be interested in them for a good FordMods mates price
