I'm assuming this is for your xr6? Superlows will not lower it 50mm like kermey said, because xr6/8's already have lower suspension than other falcons. On an xr6 superlows should lower it 20-30mm. Basically i had whiteline superlows put in the front of my car and it lowered it approx 20mm. (See pics in my gallery).I had whiteline lows put in the rear, but i'm thinking of having these changed out for superlows. As the car is, it is on the borderline of legal. I pulled out the tape measure when the car was parked on level concrete and the ground to the cross-member (generally where it's supposed to be measured to) is only just 100mm. Hope this helps.

Is that fitted dude? Seems like a fair price either way. I'm gonna save up a bit more then i'm going to get whiteline front and rear swaybars installed and while they're doing that they can put superlows in the back for me :D
