I was wondering whether the suspension on the Oct. 97 Fairmont Ghia is the same as that of GLis and Futuras or of Tickford spec. Are there any complications when it comes to lowering Fairmont Ghias? Will it look okay with 18 inch chromes not lowered? Photos would be useful. Cheers.

Bowsaw, not all chromies are rice. But I get what ya mean, alot of Supras and Skylines out there with big chrome wheels, kinds hurts the handling of the car they drive...The ANZ mayhems look alright on E-series if lowered properly. There are also alot of "pimp" spec E-series and AU fairmonts / fairlanes in Sydney running low springs and 18" to 20" chromes. Hell theres even on on here with 100 spoke 50 Cent "GhettoBling (tm)" wheels....
