It's about bloody time the fairmont got lowered - but I've been thinking about which springs to use in this case. At this point in time, and it would be several months before I get rims so the alloys stay - I want the top of the wheels to be exactly aligned with the guard - both front and end.
Being that my car looks like a bloody monster truck, I'm wondering whether the car would only need superlows or would it need to go the extra hack and get super super lows (if in existance) or the ultra lows.
What would you think? My house mate reckons it needs about 4 inches taken off it roughly...
My front guard sits just over the front wheels whilst my rear is a tiny bit above the tyres. But I am sure you will find most springs are engineered to have the rear sit a bit high for several reasons, for example to allow for a full tank of fuel, a full boot of crap and three passengers in the back. Other than that, apparently (forgot which suspension company told me) it also affects the dynamics and handling of the car - hence why you will find most cars tend to have the arse end sit that little bit higher than the front.
But if you are that keen on having your car sit fully (sik) level, then you could look at getting a set of springs reset.
