Hi dude.Well its all up to you what type of ride you want.If you want a low stiff a*** ride,there are many cheaper name brands around.But if you want good handling and comfort and dont mind paying alittle bit more cash look into pedders suspension.We use mostly pedders when we fit suspension components at work.But its really up to you.Remember when you lower your falcon remember to fit castor/camber kit to prolong life of your tyres.If you go lowered suspension also replace your shocks to also make sure you get suited shocks for the springs you have chosen.To get the best out of your handling package.Good luck.

cheers

You'll need every bush replaced at that sort of km's, it's not cheap. Shocks and springs are pretty easy to do youself. You can also buy change over suspension arms with new bushes allready pressed in which makes life easier. There's no cheap and easy fix.
