lowering an XE wagon

hey,
what brand of shocks coils and lowering blocks (or alternative) are best for lowering a wagon 1 1/2 to 2 inches, with decent setup for occasion light towing.

I used White line 1 1/2inch lowering blocks with low as possible Kings reset leafsprings, its low...but the front bar is at a good height. When I first lowered the ute(no blocks) the front bar was way to low, the front springs(kings)sunk the front heaps(130mm at the tyres)while the leafs only went 100mm, this pointed the nose into the ground...skatey as %$#@ on the highway. Then I was flicking thru an old Street Machine of mine which had a story on a Falc ute that they did the suspension on, they used the blocks with great sucess. So I grabs the same blocks slap em in. Heaps better handling and the nose raised up...almost the old GT stance!

Takin it to 7 turnin it to 11
