It'll be low... :D
Superlows will lead to some scrapage on speed bumps, which can be annoying, but the benefit you get from firmer springs make the ride much more fun. I went lows in my AU and wish I had gone back to SL's like in my old EA. It just handled much better.

Hey are you planning to lower it on stock wheels or aftermarket? This will make a ifference to ride height from what i've seen

The wheels don't make any real difference in ride height, as the
rolling radius from a stock wheel/tyre to an aftermarket wheel/tyre
will usually be closely matched.

'After markets' may, however, look a bit lower from an aesthetic
viewpoint, or just a wider tyre filling out the guard a bit more.

I know what you're saying there... I was only going by my mate's car who went from 15" stockies to 20's felt like a 4wd haha
