Look hot, but you need to lower that 4wd a bit to make them look their real size, 18" is big, should look big. :P
What else you got planned for it?

I've just started looking for the best mix of 'low' & driveable (the missus- what more can I say....). Any suggestions are welcome.

Its been a great daily driver, just started playing with it.

Slotted & cross drilled DBA rotors, EBC pads. Genie headers, 2.5" cat and pipes. Tinted windows, Sat Nav, etc, etc,

Nice, id personally be looking for some superlows/bilstein shocks.
Superlows dont seem to sit as low on au fairlanes, so id give that a go, if worried get some ride height measurements n grab the tape measure..

For actual comfort it should be great with the bilstein shocks, not harsh or bouncy which is not how a fairlane was meant to be.

Sounds like youve got some good gear/brands there in your want list, dont skimp on suspension is all i can suggest n stress the fact of, good luck! :P

Should easily get superlows on the au fairlane without scraping issues, get good shocks, not cheap "sports shocks" and it will still be soft ye has less body rool, as said bilstein all the way! 8-)
