Compress/reset them in BAs.
You'll need to get the bumpstop cut down as well.

The BA's are gay in spring height, compared to other cars or earlier Falcons.
But that ain't SSL height. Give them a week or two to settle, and if the tyre isn't even tucking guard, then take them back to where you got them from. Thats more like SL height.

Live axle the best, irs always need way smaller springs. I got king springs superlows with stock 15's, subs in boot and my tyre is a little bit in the guard (rear).

Couple sandbags mate asap --- whiile there settling try and add some wight seriously they are designed to bed in with the weight of the area.

Not crazy heavy but some extra weight will see it drop more...will stay like it when the bags are removed too...

You know tho lowering to the point the wheels are hidden under the guard will result in the car becoming un-roadworthy - due to the EBH (Eye-brow height) you will fail the ADR compliance

Will also need to get your guards pumped/rolled/flared as the rubber may scrub out when you kick her sideways etc and she snaps back with body roll...can happen to as the weight shifts and you get good body roll when cornering at high speeds

Forget waiting for them to setlle or sandbags... do this ^^^
Ultralows have been getting progressively weaker over the years.
Rear guards will be fine, camber will be fooked cause they cant adjust it that far, but thats the price you pay.
