depends on how low you go, shocks camberkit etc...
also depends on how much u want to spend... lows with cheap springs and shocks will set ya around 600 if u wanna go cheap...

otherwise up to 2k if u want some good spings and shocks

u could prolly get away with it for under 600 if u do a s**t job of it. i mean, it wouldn't be THAT bad and it would look tough. mine cost 1700 tho. king lows, koni specials and a camber/castor kit. it may have been a wee bit pricey but they did an awesome job of it! rides and looks great now.

If you know someone who can get good prices for you and do cheap install if you dont wish to do so yourself, id be looking at 600-1000 for springs/shock/install and the 1000 permits for the camber/castor kit which is nec. if you dont have one, trust me. :cry:
1000 will give you a nice setup, anything more and you will be paying for the much better shock absobers or new bushes i rekon!

as this has been said many a times before DO NOT EVEN CONSIDER doing this as it is illegal and very very very dangerous

I paid $745 for my springs/shocks + installation. The guys reckoned I may need a camber kit for $345 I think it was, but my tyres are wearing just like they were before so didn't go for that.

I'm very happy with it, sometimes I wish I went a little lower but then when I scrape over a speed bump I change my mind. :lol:

I did mine my self using Kings super lows, Monroe shocks and a K-Mac camber kit.

The springs I got just 2nd hand for $150 for all four (Expect to pay about $140 a pair).
The shocks cost me $309 for Monroe GT Gas all round.
And the Camber kit was $70.00
