If your car is unroadworthy, technically your insurance is VOID. It will be in the fine print somewhere there.

Shannons will insure dudes under 25 now, i've been with them almost 2 yrs now, i don't turn 25 until october this year! I do however hold rating one & an endorsed license here in vic.

I'd be suprised if they objected to any mods you have done to your car!

Cheers

My insurance knows about the car being too low. Basically they will cover me unless the car is in an accident etc and the suspension being lower then legal limit is deemed to be the cause of the accident. Sounds dodgy I know. Shannons, just cars etc etc say that they won't even touch it unless it is roadworthy / legal.

I wouldn't even give them the chance to deem the suspension being too low the cause, insurance will look at any scapegoat possible to get outta paying you out.

My EB's on kings lows(pretty sure they are low & not superlow), and man, i have trouble with it at that height, i can barely get up my driveway, the driveway @ work, and a lot of the time i find even if i can, i'm dragging my towbar on the ground or over speed humps. Sure it would look wicked if it was a tad lower, esp in the front, but it wouldn't be worth the hassel, esp with insurance. I'm not far off minimum ground clearance here in vic.
