Im thinking low front and super low rear as its my daily driver and dont want it to be too low especially with the inner west Sydney roads im on everyday.

Does it matter if i have a lpg tank in the rear as i dont think it drops it much??? or should i go low rear as well???

Don't know if i could cope having anything lower than standard on mine.

The tickford kit means it scrapes around everywhere.

Like XR-Lane i don't have FTR's, but the Concorde's are 16" and I'm running 225/50's which is what I've seen most people run on FTR's.

This is the only side on shot i could find of mine. I have Pedders Sports Ryder Struts with the lower mounted spring seat combined with pedders "low" springs up front. Rears are Pedders "lows" as well with the Sports Ryder shocks. The front is almost/around "superlow" height, the rear is just lower than std XR height but still sits a little higher in the rear. I'll be moving to "superlow" springs in the rear soon which should level out the height a bit.
