don't know what spec's ya after. I'd go for a high quality brand for the front spings and all the shocks. Get the rear spings reset, don't put on blocks..

Re: Lowering an XD

Either get rear leaves rest (straightened) or u can buy lowering blocks for around $50 for 2inch lowering. Front springs, get some King springs $119 a pair.

With the rear leaves - do it the right way and get them professionally reset. It's not that expensive - I was quoted about $150 to have it done done properly here in Melbourne - this is of course for me to remove the springs and take them in to them!

Actually - are lowering blocks still legal?

AFAIK, they are illegal, Ok to buy but not to fit.

Do it one and do it properly!
