low

I thinkig of dropping my car 2 inch at the front and a 1 1/2 at the back. Instead of going to someone who can do it I've decided i'm going to do it myself the thing is i want know since i'm not dropping it that far. Would i only have to buy the spring or are there other stuff i have to get

Matt

Re: low

i think u only need springs... eventualy i guess u could get new schocks
coz the stock falcons would wear out quicker
but would be fine for a while

umm i think you can do the rears with no issues

i think u might need a spring compressor or somethin to get the front ones off so they dont spring out and stick in ya eye. or somethin like that

hope this helps.

Re: low

you will only need springs to do what u want, generally you have 2 options, lows or superlows, i'd recommend lows if you're not wanting to change shocks.
rears are real easy, fronts are more fiddly but not overly bad.

fronts need a set of spring compressors to do it easily.

Re: low

you will definately need spring compressors, and a decent set too. (for the front only) If that spring lets go while your playing with it.....very nasty.
