Nicely Lowered

After some quite dodgey work and utter dissapointment in my lowering job, I decided to spend up a little and get new springs/shocks for my XF. Got some nice blue lovell springs with the pedders shocks put into the front end of my car.

Oh my god... It is such a damn brilliant ride I can't believe it. To think all this time I was driving around with cut springs(i know I know its bad, thats why I changed it) putting up with nothing short of a terrible, bouncy ride when I could of had this comfort all the time.

The car just handles so much better and it has the comfort of the unfamilar high XF's, while having a nice low stance. And its only about 3-5cm higher!!

So to all you people contemplating cutting your springs....

DONT DO IT!!!!!!

Cheers

Sounds like you got it nice now....Any pics?

And what did it set you back?

Do I really have to write something funny in here?

At the moment im just using the sensatracs. There doing the job real good. I have a pair of pedders shocks but when the bastards removed them (a while ago I got a yellow sticker for being to low) they also removed the threads. Not happy jan. Does anyone know if its easy fix, cause id really like to put them back in??

Springs where about $115 for the 2 front and the labour was $80 and alignment $20. All up $215.

Cheers
