I believe that the XA will have leaf springs, just like my baby so for the back you need lowering blocks and you can go up to 2 inch's with lowering block kits available, i'm sure you can go lower if you get a custom block.

As for the front it'd be either Lovell or Kings. Don't ever ever ever cut the springs thats a no no.

100mm ground clearance one metre fore and aft of any axle and mid-point between two consecutive axles the height in mm by multiplying the distance between the axles by 33.33.

Lower or raise if bump stop is not altered by more than 1/3 of manufacturer's specs for that car and normal relationship between front and rear must not be unduly altered.

Lowering blocks must be steel or aluminium or equivalent hardness metal.

Coils not to be cut.

I heard about some guy using wood for lowering blocks on a old Holden.:nuts:

I suppose you come to expect this from a Holden driver.:D
