Afternoon all,

Who's lowered their BA sedans? Got a couple of Q's, fairly basic!

Where did you get it done?
How much did it cost?
What height springs did you get?

Im gonna do springs and shocks, thinking Ultra's all round. Im on 19's and probably shouldnt be a problem, but just looking for peoples experiences on the subject!

Cheers

Dodd

I had the springs for my BA reset to my height and installed them and shortened shocks myself. No huge dramas but the one piece of advice I will give is to get a wheel alignment often. I have found that because the suspension is so stiff, the wheel alignment is knocked around so I now have a wheel alignment every 2500ks to 5000ks especially since 19" tyres are not that cheap out here.

i lowered mine on pedders low springs with Monroe GT Sport shocks at a later date, I to run on 19s. i did look into getting it dropped to get rid of the wheel well gap and because i got the wider 19s on it there was quite the possiblity of the wheel hitting the wheel well lip, this is because i was going to get a camber kit on it was aswell because as someone else said 19s arent cheap, so it basically came down to lower it more and have really bad camber issues so i decided just to stick with the pedders lows, the springs i was looking at getting were super low in the front and ultra low in the back, i do have a BF but as you know the differences arent much. overall i have paid 1k for the lowering and 4 shocks supplied and fitted
