Are the rear springs on the NA - NC Fairlanes the same as the rear springs on EA-ED GLi sedans? If not, What are the differences?
The reason I ask is because the Fairlanes always seem to sit pretty low at the back compared to the Falcons. I want to lower the back of a Falcon but I can't find any rear lowered springs so I was thinking of cutting a coil off some standard springs.

The fairlanes usually look lower because the self-levelling has usually failed to a point. The springs in the sls system aren't worth a pinch of S#*! and aren't designed to be load carrying.

Makita springs are a bad idea. Do it right
