I'd go King Lows in the Back and Superlows on the front. Should sit about level with the tyre all round.
My front lows seem to sit up a bit compared to the back.

Get some Koni shocks to go with it, check it all out in the Fordmods/Totalweb section...

Yeah you probably have towing shocks/springs. Trust me the King Lows sit fairly low at the back - that's why they make spacers to raise them lol...
