Go super lows if insurance, and your wallet allows it.
Lows u can still use standard shocks.

And im pretty sure falcon has same shock/spring size as fairlane. Ask at the susp shop.

I say low. I don't reckon you need to have the tyres up in the arches to look good. And plus with a Fairlane, being so long you're gonna scrape the front and rear and the undercarriage on everything if you're not careful. And as Jase said you can use your original shocks, so thats good for the pocket.

Heres a pic I took of an NC Sportsman on June 1. Looks so awesome lowered with the rims, I hope it inspires you. This is LowSmoothNC, perhaps you could PM him and ask about the setup?

Find a good suspension place and talk to them as I am running low ZL Fairlane springs in the rear of my AU.This keeps the AU standard height but with a rock hard rear end unlike the soft AU rear.A good suspension place should be able to advise you and you can mix and match

I agree with The Goodz, you go too low and your gonna scrape over any speed hump. My mate had an NC with just low king springs and because it was that little bit longer, it scraped like hell over hilly driveways and normal sized humps

I forgot about extra length and scraping.
Ask LowSmoothNC about his setup and probelms, etc.

Yeah, I have lows on my NA Fairlane, and when you get ppl in the back it drops down ne way, to a point when theres ppl you have trouble getting the arse end of the car up driveways that are steepish and stuff like that, otherwise, lows are good, make the barge's handle well
