EL XR springs

hey
I read a post somewhere on the forums about someone saying that EL XR springs are pretty good springs to lower an EF with? just wondering how much lower than standard EF springs these XR ones actually are? and if the stock EF shocks would be ok with the XR springs, or a recommendation on some suiting shocks??
cheers in advance

They'll be about 30mm lower than std on a used set ....

From memory spring rates were different between EL & EF ..... more finetuning between models from Ford

I want to die like my Grandfather did .... in his sleep. Not like the other passengers in his car at the time who were yelling and screaming....
