Ride: NF Fairlane Ghia

ive put super low (50MM) in my NF fairlane but a slight problem when the car is loaded with people it just scrubs on bumps and going up drive ways etc it doesnt have this problem when its not loaded with everyone (1-3 people) but anymore than that and it scrubs a little ive talked to dad and he suggests either pump up shocks or rubber spacers for the rear (front doesnt have any issue) im just wondering on what yous recommend as i dont wanna waste money

Just raise it up a little. Air shocks will only be any good when you pump them up.
The Falcon Superlows always sit too low in a lane as they are not the right spring rate for the extra weight.
I had proper Fairlane superlows in my NF and not a hint of scrubbing with 255/40 17 tyres 4 adults and a bootfull of luggage on a trip to Melbourne from Sydney.
They are available as I am wrecking the car out. PM me if your interested.

The spacers that sit under the spring would be a good option surely?

Mines really low, you just have to take things on an angle.

What part?

I know the sill of mine is well under 100mm off the ground.

If it really bothers you, raise it!

Air shocks, spacers and different springs have all been suggested. These are your options, there is nothing else I can tell you.

the lowest point is the muffler but if you wanna count the mudflaps they would be like 3cm from the ground

i know im just wondering what is the best long term solution ive googled spacers and apparently they wear out fast and apparently air shocks made the ride terrible i just wanted to see if you guys had thoughts as to whats the best solution

Best solution would be changing the springs. Easy to do if it's just the rears.
