Lowering My ED Ghia

Hey everyone,
umm i just recently bought a 94 ed ghia, about 2 weeks ago. its my first car and i want to get it lowered and i really dont know what im doing. its at its original ride height now. i just want to ask a few questions:

1. How low do you think it should be lowered? 1, 2 inches ?

2. Having the tickford shocks will i need to buy a new pair ?

3. Will i have to buy a camber bar ?

thank you.

Re: Lowering My ED Ghia

I would go with a set of King Springs go for SL's it should bring your car down by bout 1 1/2 to 2 inches...you it should be fine with the shocks and struts you are running with now...

Re: Lowering My ED Ghia

I suggest you talk to reputeable Suspensions Specialist.
If you are looking for a compromise then Sport Low would be the way to go.
If you want to look hot and ride a bit harsh then Super Low is for you.
Check your nearest Lovells Dealer for the right package to suit you.

when you say compromise you mean that if i get the sport low springs and not get new shocks camber bar etc. it will be a dodgy job? or you think it should be lower?

how much is the price difference?

thank you

Re: Lowering My ED Ghia

thanks to everyone thats replied. i went and had another look on the car, it turns out the front are the tickford shocks and the rear where replaced just with standard ford shocks. i will go talk to some guy at pedders or something, i just hate it when you get the guy that just wants to sell you something and they dont really want to help.

thanks again everyone.

Re: Lowering My ED Ghia

Don't chop em , not worth the headaches and hassells , For compromise I meant , on height and comfort not a dodgy job at all , if you go too low then the car can get rough to ride in as there is little or no suspension travel.
