Re: lowering the xd

I believe you can reset leaf springs to lower the rear, but most people just get longer U-Bolts and put a block in between the Diff and Spring (Not a block of Hard Wood I have heard some people do!). Front just lowered springs as per any car (Do not cut them).

Re: lowering the xd

when i do the early leaf spring falcons i charge 270 for front and rear using the block on the rear. add about 100-150 if you want rear srpings done properly so expect that price range when you look around any more and your getting ripped
