hey all, as the title says..

I don't like how much body roll i get in my falcon.. i want it to sit nice and flat around corners and not feel like a boat so to say..

so question is will getting a super/ultra combo decrease the body roll at all? or is it just purely for looks?

Cheers.

Nath.

If you want get a package with lowering springs, shortened shock absorbers and thicker swaybars.

EDIT: oh yea and also camber kit and put new bushes while its all apart.
and this will probably cost abit of money but the results speak for themselves! :D

Actually if you put in just low springs with stock shocks you get worse bodyroll and worse handling due to shocks not getting proper travel

You need to go a shocks+springs package, and then if you're more serious also go swaybars
