Ive just put 225/35/20 all round on my fairmont, i want to lower it as much as possible... Ive heard King Superlows in the front and Ultralows in the rear are the way to go? Also, who can recommend a camber / caster kit for the front? Do i need a kit to adjust the rear?

kings SL in the front and SSL in the back mate, will make it site really nice with 20s, dunno about cambers, a couple of my mates have lowered theirs on the above combo and havnt put any kits in the rear, they dont suffer uneven tyre wear from the camber being out...

Ultralows all round, get the rears reset.
Front sits nice with ultras, but the rear is a bit high, hence resetting.
You will have alot of rear neg camber though, there isn't that much adjustment as neilb mentioned.
But pfft to that.
The non-xr BAs really look f**k tough dumped on their a***.

i think you will need your guards rolled, i have superlows with 19"s and have dented my drivers side front guard from turning and braking/ going over a bump.

yeh 65mm at the rear muffler. took 2 attempts to get up my gravel driveway (not cos of the angle ocming in off the road, but cos the middle section is raised)


would sit more level with lowered fronts, and bigger wheels all round, however i only really used them as a test to see how it looked. got defected 2 hours later, so kind of an expensive test ($340 all up for 1 night of fun)
