new springs, shocks and possibly a camber kit, and anything else that may be stuffed when up on the hoist.
any place like pedders will do it for around the $1000-1200 mark.

mate dont go to pedders. they will rip u off and i dont reakon there gears is that hott. I would recomend going to like a local suspension repairer. as i live in perth i wouldnt know them over there so look up in ur yelow pages and find one. and $100- - $1200 is prettty steep. i have been quated between $600 - $900 depend on how they do it. some will try do it on the cheap by only replacing the springs with lowered ones, to do it propley you wanna replace both the springs and shocks. and some people wont fit a caster/ camber kit. it is a good idea it will save you money down the track.
hope this helps a bit

yeh i just suggested pedders as one place.
i don't know who else does that sort of work in melbourne.
i did mine myself and paid $480, and i didn't need a camber kit.
but i found out that i needed contol link bushes and balljoints so i did them while it was up.

If you cant afford to go the whole hog straight away just get some superlows chucked on the stock shocks...
I have had mine like that for over 14 months now and its only just starting to become really bouncy and hits the bump stops in the rear.

But you can get away with it for a little while if you cant afford shocks straight away :)
