Lowering XR8 Ute


Just looking at lowering my BA XR8 Ute. Just wondering what prices & how low people have gone?

I got quoted $460 to lower mine, that was resetting the rear springs.

It was $120 extra to actually replace the rear springs instead of reseting them, this is apparently much better solution.

Re: Lowering XR8 Ute

Lowered my BA XR8 ute about 2.5 in the rear and about 1.5 in the front. Front is perfect. back is perfect with moto x bike in the back. The hundred odd kilo's settles it down nicely and levels it out. My idea of a nice lowered car is tires just tucking into the guards. When measured up to be lowered the ute was apperently sitting slightly to low in the front and too high in the back, for standard. Also changed my rear shocks to aftermarket ones. There was something horribly wrong with the ones it came with. It was very unsettled above 80 km/h
