you want to drop your XR another 3"????

believe me...... thats in ultralow territory, and that is moronically low if you're out in the country

be happy with superlows, should drop you another 1"-1.5", and even then you'll have problems with driveways

i used to work for pedders, yes they do cost alot,
be very careful on how low you go, it put alot of stress on the lower ball joint,

do your self a favor, put camber caster kits on it,
the orignal upper mount wont adjust up to far, if you lower it,
you wont rip your tyres to schreds

superlows are illegal 99% of the time, ultralows are pretty much begging mr plod for a defect, and any f**k who cuts thier springs is playing russian roulette with more than just thier own lives
