depends on how low ur plannin if u jsut want low then jsut get the springs,but anything lower get a camber kit,for ultra low ull need short shocks and defo camber kit and probly have to roll ur gaurds, when i got mine done i have ultralows all round koni adjsutable shocks (its good being able to adjsut shock stiffness with a small dial) and i got all my bushes n s**t done at the same time and holy s**t wat a difference its mad

so koni adjustables makes u able 2 adjust the stiffness of ur shocks depending on what? the road? how much do they go for? if I just want mine lowered to look good, I can just get the lowered suspension, dont have 2 worry about shocks?

i got my ef lowered about 4 weeks ago and im extremely happy. I got lovells super lows al round with shorter shocks.

my wheel alignment came out almost perfect so i dont need to worry about a camber kit.

the only thing i would change is to put ultra lows in the back to make it sit level.

u only have to roll ur gaurds if u get ur car dumped on its a** (ultralows) and the front tyres rub on the gaurds. i think they just roll the inner lip up dont they, flattens it out and gives it more the tures more room b4 scrubbing occurs.

Its probably not a biggie for you but when I lowered my EL and told the insurers, they would not cover it if it was lowered more than an inch. Luckily I only went that low. Oh and it was NRMA and some years ago now as I'm almost worn through those Kings Springs.

And if you put on a heavy duty tow bar like I did, prepare for taking any savage driveway or speed hump at an angle as the vertical stiffners bang everytime!
