Re: lowering

have you heard of shockie tower risers, they are all the go for XD, XE, XF lowereing. They are used to leave some shockie travel oncee the lower suspension has been put on. Cruise on over to XFALCON.com and look around in the suspension forum, you might find something of use.

Re: lowering

XH utes have a different front suspension though, they are the same as the EA-EL sedans/wagons. Easy to get some shorter springs and shocks, and the rear leaves reset. You will be able to get 225 tyres on the stock rims but this is wider than ideal.
