Re: Raising a car!

I think Pedders have raised suspention available, and possibly even king springs as well.

You could always get stock springs and buy some of those little clamps that can lower, or raise the car by up to 2" extra.

Re: Raising a car!

I'm not 100% sure if XE and XF are the same, but if they are try getting a set of XE V8 standard springs. In a 6cyl you'd just about need 4wd shocks!

Re: Raising a car!

your car probably has cut springs, get a set of stocko ones from the wreckers cheap, and that will raise your car heaps, as xf's are pretty high from factory.
