Hey guys !

I have a 99 Series 1 Ford AU and I plan on lowering it just to make it sit a bit better !! It is currently sitting on stock springs and everything at the moment !! I want to put " King Springs Super Lows " in the front and rear, will I have to change shocks and struts or not ? And will I need spring compressors to get the new springs in ??

Cheers Jesse

Springs, Shortened shocks, spring compressors, decent crack bar, decent socket set and ring spanner set, jack, car stands, level hard surface.

A copy of a factory handset so you can have a look at what to do before doing it.

A BBQ, a few softdrinks for during, a few beers for when you are finished, patience.

How anal do you want me to be with the list?

Haha sounds good mate !!

So for the front:
- "low" coil springs
- shortened strut

And for the back:
- "super low" coil springs
- shortened shocks.


Correct ?
