Advice on Lowering 2003 BA XR8 Ute

Greetings All you Ford Fans.

Just bought myself a Citric Acid 2003 BA XR8 Ute. Couple of Extras, Leather, Sports Bar, Manual Transmission (Yea Baby) and Personalized Plate PHLEGM. Just wanting to know what the boys are doing to lower these beasts ?

Any assistance would be appreciated. Perhaps even when something was decided assist in getting those parts to me in NZ.

Hey PHLEGM,
Lowered mine second day i had it.
Lovell springs up front with a castor camber kit and reset the rear springs.

Good luck and enjoy your new toy.

Here are the pics if you would like to view:

That Looks Wicked Bro. Very Nice.

Thats looks like a premo ride height to.
How much for all the parts to do the job ?
Who has the Caster Camber Kit ?

Re: Advice on Lowering 2003 BA XR8 Ute

A company here in Perth called WA Suspensions did the job for me. They supplied the camber kit.
All up it cost me $580 fitted aligned the lot.

My vision for a citric acid ute would be low as and really dark windows with a nice set of 18" Boyd Timeless.
That my thoughts anyway..............

Re: Advice on Lowering 2003 BA XR8 Ute

Yeah i ordered it from new but had to wait for stock to come in.
The dealer (PRICK) fitted the top a few weeks later for me. (probably about 8 weeks).
