No I don't want to make my own, I want to compare the coils fitted to my Xr6 to those in a Falcon and a Fairmont to see if I can get the ride a bit smoother to know which springs to buy.....
Cheers.....

I put in a few weeks ago now superlows with GT gas shocks. The rear springs dropped 25mm too much and some bumps were quite hard as the bump stops were hitting. I now have super lows in the front still but heavy duty lows in the rear. The ride isnt too bad unless its a sharp bump but i guess the extra weight of the ghia helps.
