Looks tops mate. One question..Mudflaps, they staying or going?
I like the whole set up though, looks like the wheels look nice and flush with the guards.


Staying - I hate the sound of rocks bouncing off my car

what is the legal limit on how low a car can be?


WA is atleast 100mm clearance from the lowest point under the car

Thats fairly low in the back for just "lows" I was thinkin of goin superlows all round,but after looking at that it has got me thinking.


Keep in mind I have gas tho so theres really an extra fuel tank to take into consideration there in my boot. The extra weight lowers it more than usual.

Cheers for the comments guys!

You got the same rims and the same ride height (well close as i have superlows all round). The rims need a clean though lol.
Mate looks clean, as daniel said its a sensible height, but also sets the car off.
Just be careful going full lock going up some driveways as you will hear the tyre hit the gaurd, has done it to me a few times, and i can tell you its kind of a sickenning sound.

Full locked it a few times up my driveway no worries.

Must be a different sized wheel arch between ED and EL

Also agree with the sensible ride height comments.
You'll have no worries loading that thing up with luggage and mates!

^ what he said. Car looks great, wheels and suspension have really set it off.

You're pretty happy with it?

Yep, looks good. Nice and clean.
I dont know what everyone's concern is with sensible ride height though. Mines as low as a snakes C*** and doesnt give me drama.
