So im wanting to lower my ef2 fairmont ghia, i think they look real sweet on superlows but i have plans to fit a body kit, am i gonna run into problems with ever bump i come to?
I did read that with the right shocks superlows to scrap but what about once kit is fitted?
Also how much of a difference in scrapping will i find with lows?
I would love to see pics of your lowered ef/ls

what kinda kit are u planning on running.


im new to the falcon seen... but i've recently picked up a ef fairmont ghia with the full ef XR lower kit on it.

i couldnt get much help from froums about springs . so i just went ahead and brought some

im running SSL front and SSL rears.. and monroe lowerd shockers front and rear.

car sits really nice, but 1st problem is . u can not turn the car at full lock... so i've rolled the guards (done this a heap of times to other cars, but i found the ef guards to be a b**ch . there really flexible and seem to move all over the joint ... which then caused me to have to metal work the guards to get em right.

but car does drive nicely, and its pretty dam low

So you brought super super lows? Im thinking of going with super lows, seen a few pics and i think thats a good height. Havnt heard of anyone having trouble turning with them.

Think im gonna go with king springs and munroe gt sport lowered shocks.
