Has anyone lowered their Territory?

Pics? Prices? How does it handle/ride?

Cheers.

Because they get massive body roll. I received the car off my old man, I'm not going to sell it and I want it to look/handle better.

Stop going off at people on forums for having different opinions/tastes to you. 'Get a life!!!'

They aren't four wheel drives either.

That bagged Territory looks mint. How much for bags? :wink:

I love my Territory.
It has almost no body roll, you young fools have never been in an old 60's, 70's car (boat)
It goes round corners on rails.
It doesn't bash on every speed bump etc on the road.
It goes like stink using less fuel than the EF.

When I turn sharply it scrapes.

I'm just used to the low center of gravity of a lowered falcon.

I've inquired about airbags. There is a kit going for $2950 without installation.

How hard would it be to install?

It's a lot of money to spend, so I'm thinking how low I could get it on just plain springs?

dude i recon get it slammed so the top of the tyre is just inline with the gaurd and man good on you for wanting to lower it i think it would look tough as a teratory is just a big wagon any ways so whats wrong with lowering it there ment for the city any ways not realy an off road car like a landcruiser
so yeah man dump it with just lowered springs and shocks will cost way cheaper than bags get some phat 19's on it and exhaust system then ull be an individual and it would look oof tap

AWD Sadly.

I think I'll just go the springs then. It has 19" already, not the greatest looking ones, but good enough.

Will get an exhaust soon.

Does anyone have some pictures of lowered Territory's on springs?

Cheers
