Yeah thanks man, its pretty good, engine bay is one of the cleanest i've seen... Got a few dents to fix aka back leftside door, small spot where the clear peeled have to fix that and the drivers seats ripped.

So if anyone knows of anyone selling a drivers seat and superlows hit me up.

So not much has happened in the last few months, been garaged for most of it, ran out of reg.

Still no luck on springs though, What would be my best option, who could give me a good deal on springs+shocks (a store) if you can let me know, cheers.

Anyways heres a pic.

If you simply just want to lower it, your best bet is probably some king springs and some shortened shocks. Gt Monroe shocks are probably the cheapest. You can source both through repco for a reasonable price. Or jump on eBay, there's usually an abundance of lowered springs on there. If you want good dampers then you could go a set of koni adjustables but they will run you up to a grand for all 4 corners.... Might aswell get coilovers for that kind of money IMO.

Oh ok was looking at how much nicer they look lowered, and also how different a older eb looks compared to a ef etc, but most of all I wanna get the exhaust tip he has looks nice.

There are no differences between EF - EL ratios, you get the following from Ford, 3.08, 3.23, 3.45. And I think but not 100% sure ther was a 3.27 LSD. Don't quote me on that one though, it could have been an earlier E series.
