superlow dilemma??

Hello, ive just installed king spring superlows on my xf falcon. and from the top of the front tyre to guard is a 3inch gap, is this normal?

I havent seen it on any other lowered falcon and its bugging me.

Any ideas what i should do?

Thanks,

Re: superlow dilemma??

Did you check that the product numbers on the springs matched what you bought?

Front: KFFL-59
Rear: KFRL-27

Also, check that the springs are seated properly up inside the guard, and check that your shocks arent bottoming out.

Do I really have to write something funny in here?

Re: superlow dilemma??

Also, make sure you put the front's in the front, and the rear's in the rear. If that's okay, perhaps you have the left and right's mixed up.

If not right again, you have something horribly wrong. I don't even think that standard suspension had a 3" gap.

Is it just one corner, or all of them?

You didn't by chance get V8 springs, instead of I6 springs? This could also cause a problem.
