Hi guys

Just got some EL GT rims + Falken tyres fitted yesterday, super nice, can really notice that extra couple of inches of grip when turning into corners! Also fitted an AU Tickford Snorkle yesterday, which made a slight (but still noticeable) improvement.

Next step: Shocks/springs to really set off those GT rims nicely, and hopefully Stage 3 kit from Crow Cams.

There's a car parked next to mine, and I'm too lazy to back it out to take a side on pic, but here's a close up of the rear ;)

I also ordered some superlow springs from Whiteline today, will then save a bit more cash for shocks :) - I measured it this morning, a drop of about 40mm should look tops.

Sounds like it is really coming together! The side shot looks better, and shows how well the rims suit the car. The drop will give it a nice stance.

I reakon those 2 colours (the blue n gold) go well together, nice overlander kit :)

haha jk, I hate how falcons are so high, makes me think they have a special deal going with after market spring companies to give them extra bussiness

Very nice Bio! Those ELGT wheels look great on the EF's. They really set them off! I had mine lowered before got my ELGT's And the lowering really looks bloody unbeleivable with those rims. Ditto about those mudflaps, Take em off, they wont work with the new springs anyways, otherwise, what a beautiful car! Enjoy it champ!

Superlow springs arrived from Whiteline today - woo! That was certainly quick, very happy with their service.

- (Fronts)


Next is shockers. What do you guys recommend? Stick with whiteline shocks? Or splash out on a set of Koni's?

I got quoted the following:
Yellow (Sport): $684 per pair (front), and $522 per pair (rear)
Red (Special): $534 per pair (front), and $356 per pair (rears)

Coming along nicely mate. Can I ask how much the springs from Whiteline were? It'll look tops when the springs are in!
