change the format a little.... I dont think you need ride height before and after. Everyone knows ride height before (and if you dont you can go to holden website), so all you really need is "lowered amount (mm)".
Where you installed and how much might be handy too...

What springs: Pedders Sportsryders

What shocks: Standard

Lowered: 25mm front, 35mm rear... an inch and a bit, didnt want it too low... tyres lined up with guard all the way around. Standard wagon is up a little higher at back (rake) so to get it all lined up nicely you need to lower rear a little more than front.

Ride quality: Very happy, I drive daily and no issues with rattles or roughness.

And model: wagon- See link below for pic (pic taken a week after lowering, springs settled in a little more and above measurements are after that time)

Cost/Location: $600 installed with wheel alignment, Pedders

standard shocks i assume voodoo?

edit: blind..

looking at doing my sedan - thinking ssl's in rear and sl's in front for sake of leveling and keeping front bar safe distance from the ground =|.
