Im about to purchase lovell springs(lows) and as some people might know that the rear of the falcons sit abit higher in the back due to the engines weight in the front,i would like to drop the rear springs 5-8mm lower so as to have the car sitting level.

How do i go about doing this? Cutting?

CHEERS

lovell superlows 2 and a half inch drop
So a big difference.

they certinatly do not drop that much..

2.5" is 63mm. that would be an ultra low drop

when i lowered mine with lovell superlows i got ~35mm from front and 45mm from back
