I just got 4 superlow Kingsprings on my EF Fairmont and i like the height from the front end but the back end is higher than id like...does any one reckon it has anything to do with the shockers or anything else.....?

Let them settle as joolz said because thats where the fuel tank is and when its full will settle the springs a bit more.

Falcons are born with that rake angle.
The Sprint has the rear lowered more to flatten it out, I'm not sure if other XR's did, and I know for a fact Whiteline have lower springs for the E-Series a** end to level it out.
Wait till they settle, and see how they look then.

Well if there f**k, you have to replace them anyway.
How much of a difference in height between back and front is there? Pic would be good.

They are standard shockers and the difference between them is about 15mm from the frond end to the backend, havea look at the pic.

Yeah superlows should be a bit lower then that.
Shockers are probably fully compressed.
Get a prescription for new/shortened ones and see us in a week ;)

what you have are lovelle's, i just put some rear superlows in my EB and it sits the same height as yours on stock shocks (were monroe gas stock?) anyway when i get my gasket replaced i'll be able to see how good they are, and also gotta get the front springs in......anyone got some spring compressors i can borrow :)

Why is it that people think shocks change the height of the rear of the car? Unless theyre sls, or pneumatic they wont change a thing.
