How low can i go??

I was just wondering how low can i go before i have to start changing shocks or putting in camber kits?? I pretty much want it to sit on the top of the tyres.

For those that dont know its a BA XR with 18's.

30 mm drop in the front used peddars springs $107<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

50 mm drop in the rear used peddars re sprung leafs in the rear (change over) $165<o:p></o:p>

Gave them $250 cash more than happy...<o:p></o:p>

If you need installation that’s extra.
need to allow money for a good wheel alginment and shims.

After you lowered it, 30mm front, 50mm rear, how does it ride? do you feel more bumps? is it noticably rougher? Thats pretty dam cheap. Also XRFPV8, would you happen to have a photos of it now that it's lowered, just to compare? Cheers

Wheel alignment adjustments

There is no substitute for cubic inches but my pursuit sure closes the gap




*UPDATE * Pursuit has just run 11.763 and 116.18 mph making it Australias Quickest and fastest unopened boss as well as Australias Quickest and fastest naturally aspirated Boss
