My big spender

Hi guys, as of Friday I had the following installed on my car...

new 225/60/15 rubber
castor camber kit
sway bars (27mm units from EF XR8)
King lows
Munro GT gas shocks

..and I am loving it, the sky high rear end sits down properly (the front hasn't moved much). Steering is as direct as befor but without the body roll. Reason why I went lows not superlows is due to speed humps and cops (I don't want to rip off me tint). So yeah pretty happy at the moment, will provide befor and after shots for you tonight.

Re: My big spender

225/60/15 might be a weeeee bit too big. 225/55/15 is the right size for Falcons. Well as close to the right size as possible.

Re: My big spender

Came to about a grand all up, all four shocks were done.

the sway bars I picked up 2nd hand for $40

psycho chicken: When I replaced my 195/75/14 skinny stockers to 225/60/15s rims it worked out on a online calculator as not effecting the speedo, so basically both having the same diameter. I have had no clearance issues and none since I had the lows in. If I went superlows then the gaurds may of required rolling.

Re: My big spender

Ignore me, I forgot an inch is 23.4 mm not 25.4 mm.

Next time I'll use an online calculator and not try do it myself.
