Hey guys,

I've got ultra lows in my falcon and I'm pretty much over them already, was looking at getting some XR6 springs in, not too low, but just a nice ride height and a lot more comfortable. Just wondering though if it's worth my time getting my stock springs that I have reset by a suspension place to XR6 or similar height? Will i notice any difference in the two - seeing as though XR6 springs aren't that much lower than stock.

Also, looking at upgrading shocks too for a much more comfortable ride and a bit better handling etc, any recommendations for XR6 height springs?

Cheers
Josh

Actually for Low, go Pedders. The Ride/Comfort and perfomance is better.

as above not worth getting your stock springs reset if you are after something that will improve handling over stock, you want a bit more rate.

springs, pedders or lovells...
shock wise, have you got a budget in mind?
i've got koni sports aka yellows and they are good, but ive also liked cars ive been in that had pedders sportsryder shocks.
if you can get a good deal on a full pedders kit it's not a bad way to go.
