i have an ef with king spring super lows in the front and just the lows in the back. havnt been harrassed by cops...yet. ive noticed that alot of ef's and el's have superlows front and back. have they actually passed the rwc test if needed with these superlows all round? what is the total ride height without a driver with a full set of superlows? i am only askin coz i want superlows in the back aswell. makes a massive difference on how the car looks!!!!!!!!!!!!!
thanx guys...

ive got super lows on mine front and back. and it did pass a rwc when i got it. tho i think the rule is that the lowest part of the car can be no less than 10cms from the ground, and im pretty sure part of my exhaust is lower than that.

Superlows in VIC will be fine just keep to the lowest body part of the car being 100mm from the ground...the rear resonator porbably is below that but not many cops pick at it...if you want too it doesnt cost much for an exhaust shop to have the exhaust lted or a new tail pipe with a muffler put on that will keep u on the legal side.

yeh its the exhaust that does it and can be more then the rear muffler its the bends coming down and out of it....but yeh cheap to rectify...superlows in them selves wont be a drama.
