Lowering Blocks on Leaves

My dad's friend has made lowering blocks for his cortina and XD Falcon while he was working for the railways doin a trade. What I was thinking of doin was the same thing as I have access to a workshop with all the shit I need. Just wondering if anyone knows the specs for one that would suit the EA

Re: lowering blocks

yeh man I know that they r pretty cheap to buy, but they are also a piece of piss to make, my mate has the material to make em with, all we gotta do is buy the U bolts. Saves alot of money which can be put towards other things. I don't want to drastically lower it either, just get the back looking a bit more level. I measured the bottom of the grey strip at the front and at the back and difference was 53mm which is more than 2". All I want is to drop it about an inch so that it looks more level but isnt so eye catching that dad will notice
