Got a free set of pedders heavy duty rear springs for EA-EL, Part numbers are 7180LH and 7180RH.

The bloke I got them off said they make the rear of the car sit between standard and low(xr6) height. Is that right??

And I take it the taller spring 7180RH goes on the drivers side and spring 7180LH goes on the passenger side.

Thanks....

The L & R are rh & lh that is correct, a little taller (R) on the drivers side. Those are probably more or less a standard height coil though. Measure from the bottom of your rim uo to the lip of the guard, they should sit approx 600mm with 15' wheels, if you have larger just add 12mm for ever iinch your wheel is bigger

Thanks for that info :D

I fitted them at around 1pm today, they sit about 20mm lower than with the standard springs. Back end is alot stiffer now and the car finally sits level between the front and back. When you go around a corner you get less body roll in the back, like if the car had a thicker rear sway bar fitted. :mrgreen:

Just fitted some Monroe GT Gas shocks in the rear as the factory ford shocks were completely stuffed. Car handles soooo much better now............
