I recently lowered my car with king super super lows.
It's a real rough ride but handles great, what do you think?

I've still got the stock shocks in there, because there was xr sports suspension in there anyway. But I'll be replacing them soon cause they were nearing the end of their life, and now they're under constand pressure. They've been given 12 months. But I'll be looking at a decent set of sports shocks, I can get at cost for around $700

the springs are super super lows, lower than super lows. But because the car hasn't got skirts and 40 profile tyres it looks higher. The mufflers are about the height of a cigarette packet off the ground, and the suspension only has about an inch of travel. It's got a bit more than 2 degrees canber in the front, great for handling.

yeah, the tyres are onle cheap, so when they're up for replacing I'll put a camber kit on with some good quality rubber. I was told a camber kit would be about $350 or so, and a bugger to install. But I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Ideally if replacing springs replace shoickies. The stock shockies are dsigned to work best on stock height, not super low height like mine is at the moment.

Looks good (the car) though mate.
