Ok I've had bit of a search but couldnt really find anything to answer my question.
I've got a fairmont ghia and am looking at lowering it. I have had a bit of experience in 4wd suspension but am new to this falcon type, I've figured you need spring compressors for the front but no one has mentioned much about the rear.
So my question is how hard is it to change the rears and how do i go about it?
Any input would be great
cheers

my rears were simple to change.
i jacked one side of the car up, and left the other side on the ground.
then put a jakc stand under the chassis, lower the jack and you'll get a massive gap, and the spring pretty much pops out.
if it dosent, the compressors will do it.
the rear is a piece of piss to do, you'll be done in an hour.
