Gday guys i have no idea what im looking at in terms of suspension parts. I am looking to lower the car just slightly so it body doesnt sit so high above the wheels. Just curious as to what kind of shocks, etc to look for and a rough price range and also will tickford shocks do what i want?? Cheers.

have a search through this section

grab some lovels lows ( roughly Xr height ) and some Kyb shocks
these will provide a great improvement on handling/looks and cost around 1k fitted

XR8/XR6 pretty much the same deal. Low springs for the 'xr look'... superlows for the, well, 'lower than xr' look...

EDIT: Sorry, IIRC the difference is just under 1inch... i.e. XR vs GLi...
