fellas,

i am looking at lowering my BA XR6 Turbo ute more at the rear, just wondering how everyone else has lowered theirs and what kind of results you have got as i have flipped the bottom leaf over on to the top and it lowered it by about 1". I want it about 3" lower then what it is....

I am thinking about putting lowering blocks in it but i have been told by some people that it wont fit as the shock will hit the wheel.

So yea pics and an explanation on what you have done to lower it would be great thanks guys

Dylan

you can buy pre lowered leaf springs, or get your current ones reset.
i bought a pre lowered set so i could keep my factory height ones just in case.
i lowered the front about 2" and the back about 3-4".

take old springs out, bolt new ones in. same as changing a set of coils for lowered ones.

to do the front coils and rear leaves cost me $800 drive in drive out with a camber kit and wheel alignment using pedders springs from a workshop in Bendigo.

Just had a look at the king spring site,
just wondering and it might sound stupid but the Super lows are lower then the lows right??? Its just that they have them around so it goes super low then low in the cat

anyone have the lows or super lows in there ute, if so how much did it drop the rear???
