vs 5.0l
Hi there I'd like some info on lowering my vs. I have previously owned a lowered vs but this was many a years ago. I had it slammed on kings SSL front and rear with pedders rear shocks and ultima fronts.
Because it was so low I had to fit a whiteline front sway bar to avoid destroying sway bar rubbers.
Times have changed since then and my new car also has IRS. Are there spring and shock combo's out there that will slam my vs? I still want captive springs and as smoother ride as possble. What are people doing about sway bar rubbers? Are kings and monroe making a shortened shock and spring kit for this model? What is the best camber kit to use for this?

Thanks for the help guys, Just ordered kings ssl fronts and sssl rears with monroe gt sports shocks all round.
VL-187 can you post some pics of how low your calais is.
Also ordered the nolathane heavy duty sway bar links with ball joints either end.
As for rear bump stops I will have to wait and see what I do there.
I also ordered a camber kit.
Can anyone tell me how close it will get the camber to being right?
