Righto guys. Ive done a search and what not and there doesnt seem to be heaps for lowering a BA wagon. well, there might be but im too blind to find it. haha.
So Im looking at buying a BA wagon and the first things getting done are wheels and lowering. ive picked out wheels already and theyre a 20" rim and 8.5 wide. I know they will fit front and back. On the front i plan to go with Ultra low springs, it'll ride rough i know but, you get that with the big jobs. Now. for the back i've decided to get the back springs reset but the problem is i dont know how much to get them reset. :( I'd want an even stance all round. If anyone could point me in the right direction where to figure this out, it'd be much appreciated. I'm going to gues sthe answer is really obvious but it's just not clicking. Also, i dont want to use lowering blocks.
Cheers.

Hey mate couldn't tell you how much to get the rear reset but with your 20's make sure you get 35 profile tyre otherwise the tyre will foul top wishbone thing. Well I know my 20's did

I would get the front done first, then work out the rear ride height.
