It'll love it!
But it'll render the self leveling suspension useless.

Yeah should fit just fine, just dissconnect the self leveling suspension at the compressor and take out the fuse for it(leave compressor in car though, pain in the a*** to remove) and it should be all good

the compressor is piss easy to take out.

the suspension is a straight swap over, i have done it in about 45 minutes.

This might seem like a stupid question, but, if you lowered the front on a fairlane would the self levelling suspension lower the rear? :?:

Ahhh, i dont know actually, i wouldnt think it would, it may a little but not a great deal. It would prob put a lot of stress on the compressor if you done it that way though. By now the compressor is prob already half stuffed from its constant actions.
