Ride: 2006 BF mkII XR6

Location: Wimmera
VIC, Australia

This is most likely a very "noob" question, but i was wondering if putting my BF XR6 on superlows will require me to have to use more than just the springs? i have heard of people needing to change shocks as well and sometimes also needing camber kits?

Will i need all this from the get go or will i be right with just the springs?

Thanks.

I would suggest new shocks and camber kits as well.
Do it right, and do it once.

Agreed,

i have a BF SR and lowered it with Peddars low springs. I later (prolly a month at most) replaced the shocks with Monroe GT Sport for a firmer ride and plus the added benefit of so much better handling. I didnt do a camber kit although i kind of wish i did, chewed thru my 19s in about 22kms. So when I got new tyres got a front camber kit supplied and fitted for $200. I was advised not to get the rear done due to it putting funny angles on the cv joint/arm so i will simply rotate my tyres front to back every 5000ks or so. I did get the tyre shop to adjust the toe on the rear to compensate for the negative camber so that will at least help a bit to. I think from memory the rear camber is just under 1 degree negative on both sides. Front is like 0.2 negative degrees or something very small like that
