G'day guys,

I will be lowering the lane very soon and am after pics of other Lane's/LTD's and info on what has been fitted. I will be fitting myself and have a couple of sets on Ebay which I am watching. I am currently looking at SL front and L rear bearing in mind that it is dual fuel and is the family daily (3 kids). This is what it looks like now :cry:

I'm half way there :) Just picked up a set of front SL KingSprings with Monroe Gas Struts in as new condition for $61.00 on Ebay :D Bloody bargain Eh. Now I just need to win a set of springs for the rear and I will be finally coming down to earth (so to speak) :lol:

Thanks mate.
They were just lowered 'road huggers' that were fitted a few years ago.
Now (no pix) I have Pedders SL's due to the new wheel size. :roll:

Done deal! Picked up a pair of Kings lows for the rear for $39 brand new. That's my whole package for $100. Stay tuned for new picks once they arrive. :D :D

Not at all. :) I'm very happy with the height and the end result. Handles beautifully now with the lower centre of Gravity! :lol:
