Re: Lowering an EF
When I had my suspension stock and put on my 17x8.5" wheels, I needed C/C kit before i even lowered it. I killed my first set of tires that way (wearing on inside). I adjusted it to its max and still didn't do anything. It cost me $300 fitted for my new camber kit but that was about 4 yrs ago, and now I have it lowered 2" I am glad i did it earlier.
Yours is a fairmont and I think it will definitely need the C/C kit if you are going to superlows, but I do have 235R17 on mine and if your tyre is thinner it might be ok.
