    Overly lowered in the front, on an 06 xlr v, help

    Just closed the deal this evening and know I need to deal with the front end having been lowered too much for my sake. I'm a good wrench but not before dealt with this kind of a front end setup, can anyone offer what I will likely find as to how it was done and what it takes to reverse or lessen it. I'm a good study but just anxious to find out on this one.

    Without shots of the suspension, you'll only be getting generalities as to how it was accomplished instead of the detailed answer you seek. Take it in to a dealer and ask them what it needs to be returned to stock and order what's needed online if it's beyond your capability to install. Buy a set of GM shop manuals from Helm to guide you.

    You might want to call D3 with your VIN number and ask if their lowering springs were installed for the previous owner. If so, I'll swap you my stock springs for them and we both benefit.
