I was wondering if someone could give me some insight into lowering a ba xr6 turbo.
i wondering if its possible to lower them couple of inches (not looking for speed hump scraper) with a set of new springs and not buying new shocks and camber kit? Or this is strongly recommended against?

mine sat on kings super lows all round. it looked good but i would never go any lower as it scraped a bit and once almost pulled the bar off. ssl you wont get over a speed hump from xr height i think.

I have SSL in the rear, and SL in the front. No real issues.. but then i dont have the XR Kit to worry about.
