a friend of mine has aked me for a quote to lower his series 1 au falcon. Firtsly here is a list of what he wants

pedders lowered gsr struts
pedders gsr shocks
king springs super lows front and rear
camber kit

now when i rang pedders today for prices on shockers and struts they told me they dont stock a lowered strut and as far as they are aware nobody make short stroke stut for the au's. This sounds a little hard to beleive. i dont particularly want to fit standard stroke struts with s/l springs.

my question is, are there good quality short stroke struts available for the au's

any help is much appreciated, cheers

If you get the correct springs, they are designed to fit std height struts.
The springs will be variable rate, as in rising rate, they will have close coils expanding out and I think the wire is different diameter, as in a slow taper. Get new bump stops and cut about 1/3 off them.
