Re: Raised Height
you could use the same method that the Subaru lift-kits use. Fit spacers between the front sub-assembly and the vehicle frame. On a Falcon this would be between the K-member & G/Box crossmeber and the frame rails. This way the engine, suspension, sterring and transmission all stay low so no extra clearance there but the body goes up for extra clearance under the middle. It'll still need re-arched springs in the back to level it off.
With Subaru's this gives them wheelarch clearance to fit taller tyres which then gives the extra clearance under the front end. With the Falcon you still have interference issues at the front unless you run extra offset to move the tyres way outboard - not a good look, extra stress on the front end components and won't pass rego.
Interestingly, up to 50mm spacers are OK with the rego people in NSW.
It's probably not as easy as it sounds as you still have to link up the steering column, coolant & brake lines, etc etc.
