First i will ask what are the laws regarding how low you can have your car (preferably in SA)?

Also i would like to get some Superlows to even my car out but i have a Gas Tanks and a huge sub box in my boot if i went Superlow Springs even with this load will the car still even out?

Also my drive way is a prick of a thing to get up here is a picture do you think my car will scrape with Superlows ? If i get Superlows could i still use the shocks i have now?

The old coke can rule is pretty reliable, superlows you should be fine theyre not really that low, its all about the angle you take coming on to the driveway.

I'm fairly sure you can get heavy duty superlows for the rear? If not just look for some second hand and then if too low you can switch back to lows. As for legality it is too hard to say; have seen cars sit at so many different heights depending on brand and what is in them.

You can run your shocks but the ride will probably be s**t and they will prematurely die. Considering how cheap some shortened shocks are definately better off buying some. As for the driveway, as long as you slow right down before so you aren't on the brakes and you angle it right i don't think it should be a problem; i managed to get around 90% of driveways with superlows.

superlows are pretty low, i have some troubles sometimes if im not very careful.

ive got lows in the front, which gives it an almost imperceptable lean to the rear.

you have a lot of extra weight in the back. personally id put in lows to be safe (with shortened shocks). dont run the regular ones, they just arnt designed for that job.

you can get a set of shortened shocks (ultima) on ebay from ringwood auto parts for a few hundered quid, and they do a good enough job.

Maybe talk to a suspesion place about how low supers will make the back of your car, and then park in the driveway with the rear at its lowest point, and then take a measurement of how much room you have to play with.

dude you wont want any higher than super lows with the extra weight in the back it would look sweet i wish i put ultralows in mine.
also i got pulled over by cops and they messured my car and said it was 10 mm to low at the rear and it was fine at the front so it was detectable but they were champs and let me go
