Hey guys,
Ive got a BA XR6 with SSL front springs in it (AU ultra lows) with Au shortened shocks
My question is, ive seen alot of cars with BA shocks instead sitting lower than mine with the same springs (different top on the shock i believe)
Im just wondering, if i was to get the proper BA tops for the shocks, instead of the AU ones, would that sit it a bit lower or am i just imagining things?

Cheers

I would be measuring the distance from the centre of the wheel on a standard BA XR6 and the same on yours. I put AU XR6 springs onto a mates BA XT using BA XR shocks and it sits at the right height.
