Yeah, I put king springs in my EF Fairmont. If you look at the tyres to the wheel arch, the back looks lower. If you look at the sill panel to the ground, it looks level. They will settle a bit after a couple of weeks.

Mine is actually 10 mm higher at the front measured from the running board (or sill). Its also visible by looking at the difference between the tyre and the arch.

Maybe they got the V8 springs and fitted those to the 6 cylinder. Being not as much weight at the front of the car the springs arent compressed as much. I'm just guessing though.

I'll just live with it.

Mine is the same as e-falcon's. It looks a tad lower at the back but measure the sill to ground distance and its dead level.

yearh i have superlows and the rear tyre is futer in the guard than the front, however the car is dead level.
If it bugs you, you can install a nolathane 10mm spacer under your rear spring.
it is a lower spring seat, nolathane part# 47299 (EA-EL).
mate did it to his car and it looks level now.

yeah when our cars were next to each other, mine seems to sit lower at the front than at the back - mine is fitted with KYB shocks & lovell springs all-round...
