Re: Slammin My XF Wagon

you need to use spring compressors to get your fronts out.

you can buy ones that clamp on to each side of spring and screw up with long bolts.

Getting the rears reset will cost a lot more than lowering blocks , and normally offers about 40 mm max , blocks will offer up to 55 mm , front spring replacement should offer up to 60 mm drop , measure things before purchase though .
