Lowering ED Fairmont

Hey, im going to buy lowered springs either kings or lovells. I think its gonna cost around $400 to do the job but i cant see the value in that with just sport low springs. will i have any trouble putting super lows in with the rest of the stock suspension and how much lower will that be than standard, should i expect any tire rub?

Thanks guys

Re: Lowering ED Fairmont

i wouldnt recomend putting superlows with standad suspension.. if u want superlows... do it properly... if u got standard rims u can do it for cheaper caus u wont need a camber kit... but seriousaly save up and do it properly proper shocks and balance

Re: Lowering ED Fairmont

car will bounce as the stock shocks are not made for superlows, i.e. piston to low, u will not get any steering improvement most likely it will degrade it with stock shocks.
chance of the springs poping out when goin over speed hump, rear springs will probably come out every time it is jacked up or on a hoast.
etc etc
get shorter shocks with superlows or just go low for now.
if u can try and hunt down 2nd hand springs from wrecker, low or xr ones.
safest way go low.
