if u want to go lower, you'll need lower springs. Shocks dont really detrmine ride height as such (in the front maybe cos u can change spring saddle height)

king lows are not too low at all. its only a bit lower than a tickford setup

yer but when the guys put my rear lows in..the car only dropped like 5-10mm

the fronts came down heaps more..also the bottom of the springs won't sit flat in the socket things, i've moved them in postion and they've sort of pop'd out lol...sounds dangerous

i'll try and get pictures of my car....

takes about a week for it all to settle. Fronts go lower quicker cos of weight of engine. Fill it up, get some mates in the back and go for a cruise. Should all settle out eventually

having said that though, my EL sits higher in the rear. Always has, always will

self leveling wil jack it right up, i think anyway.

i have them in the fairlane still, and she is high.. damn high.

if u have these, take them out ASAP. they are s**t, unless u are towing stuff, and even then, they arent the best... IMO anyway.
