Ok just wanting to know... got an EB Fairmont with 18 " rims on it... 235/40ZR18 is the size of the tyre and it has all original parts eg suspension, shocks and springs...looking at lowering it in the next month so starting my research now...
What type of set up could anyone recommd me that has done it to a Eb or a EB fairmont or anything to that matter...now i wana go low but not illegal hehe.. still has to be legal...ive heard has to be 100mm or more is that right...?? i want it sitting on the tyres so u cannot see under the car kinda thing! and not to bad so i scrape everything on the bottom.. it has no body kit on it so that wont be an issue when i go over things.... just dont wanna be collecting speed humps and stuff...ive heard heapz of stuff superlows and lows ...and compressing springs.. and i want something nice not a butchered job..i mean i know a bit but just dunno what i want...and sumthing that doesnt bottom out too...if i tow sumthing or have a few ppl in the back...any suggestions would be appreciated what i have to chnage and the cost around about.. and also if anyone has done it in melbourne.. where abouts?

thanks in advance

P.S I have posted up a pic that sumone else on this forum had up cause i liked how the lowering looked on it + i dont have the side skirting
and the side indicator looks like a vt commo one doesnt it??
