The EA - ED have different part numbers for shocks from the EF and EL, and the springs were listed differently on some spring manufacturers sites when I was trying to find the short, stiff and so called "progressive" XR6 sports springs for the front of the wagon. I think I still have the email address of the guy who bought the back pair off me (which would at least get you down to XR6 height at the back, Mr NZboatEA......)

I sold them to him for $90 and he's in Nelson... Uhm, will see if he still has them. Don't think he liked them as his drive was too steep or something...

[EDIT]
Yeahp, $90 and he's in Nelson. The ones he has spare aren't the ones I sold him... He put the ones I sold him into his Fairmont sedan EF and likes them. He has "COBRA V8" rear springs that are exactly the same height, but probably stiffer, but his mate also had a complete set of XR6 fronts and rears that only has the rears available now... $90 plus postage!
