Hi all,

I want to lower my ba falcon but I'm not sure if I should go superlows or low.

Any advice would be appreciated thanks I would like to still be able to drive with not to much scraping and I want it to handle well

So if I understand correctly lows will take it to xr height and super lows will be lower then an xr. In terms of handling are lows better then superlows ? I have 16s at the moment but I will get 17s soon

FYI I'll be fitting new shocks as well as new sway bar bushes. Hard to describe but the car feels loose / old so I want to tighten everything up

bought a AU sedan ages ago with i think ssl's....... gives me a crap ride due to ride height & handling [plus i got ova the falling in/climbing out of car]. thats my opinion tho ... my current ride is standard height which is too high, so maybe xr height but maybe go with a stiffer spring?? have had other makes which were lowered & were ok .. but there were trade offs ie. great cornering but hassles with bumps/speed humps. mines on 16s & think other was 16s. most people go ssl or a combo to get the look of the car being 'level'

Thanks for the info. The look of the car being level would be nice. Do you happen to know what the combo is

That's looks good. Thanks for your advice. I looked at an xr6 today and couldn't help but think it could be lower with no issues. Such a hard decision to make :)
