What Spring/Shocks for a EF Fairmont

Hey all,

I've got a EF Fairmont and i'm getting some 17x7's for it with 235 rubber.
My question is what Springs/Shocks do you suggest, I want my car to handle well but more importantly i want is AS LOW AS POSSIBLE.
I havent got a budget yet, but air bags are out of the Question .

Ok Thanks

Toby

Re: What Spring/Shocks for a EF Fairmont

You may find that if you go to superlows that you may need the GT bushes so the extra shims can go on for more adjustment to the camber. I needed them. We found that on the same car with the same specs that dramas had arisen and tyres were getting chewed out of everywhere. They cost $72 each, and you need 4 of them! Plus the front end alignment and labour, you are looking at over $400 alone.
