I've had 2 quotes done at suspension shops, 1 being 1700 and 2 being 2100!
I asked for lowest legal.. Has anyone got their falcon lowered for cheaper or am I being ripped off

What are they offering in the quote?
Is it including shocks?
Is it new leafs in the rear or reset?
Without this info no one can tell if the quotes are dear or not.
They could be very fairly priced or bloody expensive.

There is your price difference.
Koni shocks.

The guy said that any other type of springs wouldn't hold and I'd be back in another 6 months for a replacement. Apparently they don't make actual pre lowered springs for falcons because they "don't get lowered" if you walk through any cbd you'll see at least 5-10 lowered falcons..

What do you guys have on your falcons and how much did they cost? Have a feeling this story is a lie
