mad Got to Lower again

Hey guys...

about 2 weeks ago i lowered my falcon 1.5 inches...

a week later i got 17" rims...

right now the front looks fine..like its as low as i want it to be...but the back is raised up still...it looks like a dragster...

i want to lower the back again this week but I dont know how much more to lower to even the car out...

I really dont want the rear to be lower then the front..eek!

so will it be extra 1.5" enough you guys reckon?

Cheers

Go with King's Superlows at the back, they look good on mine, guard sits about an inch above the tyre.

measure from bottom lip of your guard to the centre of the wheel and take that measurement to your fulcrum or pedders or whoever you deal with. they will be able to match your fronts with that.

this is my car, kings superlow (2" drop) and a decent stezza, standard 15" wheels and the tyres sit j-u-s-t above the guards...

just in case you wanted to compare ride height.
