If you go superlows you will definately need shortened shocks to make it roadworthy. If using lows you can get away with the standard shocks but if car is loaded up it may be a hard ride. I have lows all around at the moment but to level out the car im putting in superlows on the front and Ultima shortened shocks all around with heavy duty on the rear.
There is a thread in this section with some pics of falcons/fairmonts on Dobinsons.

They are ok if running lows on a Gli or XR but for a slightly heavier car like a Fairmont ghia i found them to bottom out too easy the same would apply if you had a gas tank. If you just put in the GT's i would go lows but if you want it lower again and have the cash you really should get shortened shocks not only to make it roadworthy but to give a smoother ride.
