I'm going to be wanting the whole kit and caboodle where as all i have to do is hit the switches to raise or lower, i don't want that ricey crap of 3 wheels up and 1 dropped.

I'd like the wife to be able to know that she can raise it to go over a speed hump if needed.

I want to drive in, come back in a few days fork over the dosh and drive away with a beautifully lowered car that i can adjust.

Ok... ive been asking around and everyone ive spoken to said that it can't be done coz of 'clearance' issues, but wont elaborate on it. the back's piss easy, but who can make up a strut? i've already bagged the back, the compressor and tank are already there, my lines are run, but i cn't find anyone to make struts? What exactly is the clearance issue anyway?

I'm not 100% sure what the clearance issue is, but as far as i know, the strut needs to be completely replaced.
The guy from Cali Customs in Vic, said they were onto trying and sorting out a different strut for the front from the States. This was over 6 months ago, but he said it would be dependant on the amount of interest he has from Falcon owners. So if they haven't got one done, then he mustn't have had much interest...
