Re: lowering ute with xr springs

what does the front suspension look like? is it XD spec or is it the E-series style?

on the XDs the spring platform was bolted to the upper control arm from memory, and on the E-series the spring goes over the shock and down onto the lower control arm...

Re: lowering ute with xr springs

98 XH is E series front end.
BTW, don't use lowering blocks, they are crap. Have the leaves re-set.
You may also be able to lower it a little by moving the front spring (rear end) eye to the upper position, if it isn't already there.

Rick.
