If Your XF Is Lowered pls Read this

i have an XF ghia that is lowered on "low" King Springs with monroe GT Gas shocks. when you look through the top of the shock tower on the front there seems to be only about an inch or so of shock travel. Also the bump stop seems to be doing a lot of rubbing against the control arm. IS this right? I would have thought there should be more shock travel than that?

You may need a shock with a shorter body to allow for more travel. The konis I put in my XF when I lowered it were shorter than the shocks i had in it before that.
Also you might want to trim the bump stop to allow for more travel before the control arm hits it

I have chopped the bump stop virtually in half, and have spaced the shocker top in the engine bay approx 15mm, got a bit more travel out of it.

Same car............new lease on life
