Just thought id let everyone know. I had a full car the other night driving at 80 or 90 km/h. When i hit medium sized bumps in the road for example the start and ends of bridges you can hear the tire rub.

My guards arnt rolled and thats on super lows with 18"

I'll be putting some Monroe shocks in soon... we'll see how that affects the ride height.

I'll try to take a comparison photo if it's that noticeable.

agreed. looks really neat.
just a point though, your springs set the ride height, shocks shouldn't affect your ride height at all and if they do they are the wrong shocks. You need to check that the shocks you get (or have in the car already) will still perform properly when lowered. a standard shock will bottom out if you put superlows on. progressive stroke shocks can be at the end of their comfortable limit and into the go-kart part of their setting which give a really harsh ride and rattles the fillings out of your teeth. i have short stroke big bore koni shocks in mine as they are designed specifically for superlow springs and i still get a nice ride.

I'm looking at a set of Monroe GT Sport shocks, which seem to be designed with King Springs in mind, so I'm thinking that any difference should be minimal if any at all.
