    Copying the thread i saw in the vz section, post pictures of your lowered vn era commodore with specs of wheels and suspension! Thought this could be like a good base for people wanting to lower there car but not sure on what setup to go with. Either this will be a fail or will get up and going, hopefully the latter!! thanks guys :))

    VNs don't need big wheels! (Unless they have an Aero kit)

    Quality over quantity :)

    Yeah sedan springs compress more in wagons. Same springs in my old vp sat about an inch higher.

    Ultralow equivalent front, superlow rear. Pic with stockies and pic with 19's. Mind you it has adjustable strut tops at the front which raise the front a little. Even with an adjustable panhard rod, I'd roll the guards anyway, especially as 19's look skinny with anything narrower than a 245 width tyre. Its really not that hard, and if you heat up the paint first, you shouldn't crack the paint. Just make sure you get the correct profile, as anything higher can hit the spring seat - check out how close my 245/35 gets to the spring seat in the bottom pic.

    This was my first VN I had back in the early 90's
    It too had Pedders, to long ago for exact product used
    however you will notice it seems higher in the front
    I do remember it had Pedders sports shocks in the back rather than Comfort as in my current ride
