Spot on!
When i had my XF a while ago, i had the front lowered 3 inches and left the back stock as a rock! The front had about 7cm ground clearance!
At the time i liked it.. for some odd reason?! ..mates laughed at it!
My handing was also s**t!

Get 'em both lowered.. Looks much better. *loves the look of dropped xfs*

The look from the 70's & early 80's. Have had that look in the past on a couple of cars. It looks Ok if the rear tyres are wider with higher profile tyres than the front. Will look cool on the X series cars but bizzar on the E's & later fords.

It ends up looking like this, even though it doesn't look like it, that car handled good (surprised me too), it used X series cut V8 springs, pedders short sports frt shocks, whiteline 24mm front swaybar, heavy duty 4wd rear gas shocks and original rear springs, I towed a lot of things I shouldn't have, especially with that tow bar, so that is why I never got around to lowering the back.

@ Damage- Scotty P doesnt want to find out that when lowering his xf he may also find himself married with a dog and two kids.
