I have fitted 18' FG XR6 wheels to my BA XT.

I wish to lower it a little to add appeal. What legal spring sizes should I consider and how much do they lower the car by?

Thanks.

If you wish to just lower it for aesthetics, I would be looking at a set of either standard XR springs or a set of King Springs.

I installed Kings Superlows into our BA Ghia V8, its not low enough for me, but would be ideal for someone wanting something a bit lower then XR springs.

Wife also got pulled over for a random roady test the other day and was fine for height, despite being loaded with dog food.

Thank mate. That is what I would probably be after. I want to make sure it is legal and I don't want to compromise in comfort/ride quality on bumpy roads.

I just want it to look better than standard height.
