It not as bad as it sounds, I thought I wouldn't be able to drive anywhere with ultras and when I put them in it want that bad, lows aren't much lower than xr spec imo they look like stock height , go supers it will be fine, or if u want to test how supers will be get some spare stock springs , cut 1 or 2 coils off untill it's the height u want then take it for a drive, if u don't like it get lows if u do get supers, obviously don't have cut springs it's just a way of seeing if supers will suit ur needs

Anyone have pictures of an EL on superlows and another EL on lows?



Click on my build thread link in my sig, they are super lows , then find a el xr6 with stock springs , that will be similar to low spec

Yeah I'm going to go superlows, I've driven an EL xr on superlows this morning an it really wasn't too bad at all. Just had to go slowly over speed humps an into the servo. I don't think low springs would get the look for my car that I want and if superlows aren't that bad I'll just get them.
Thanks again :)
I'll get some pics up of my car eventually lol

Will I get any problems if I put an XR body kit on after I lower her? How much lower would that make her?
