haha yep just the bak tho.

i have pedders gas shocks or something and superlow kingsprings both for the bak.

but we took the car to a place who had a look at the spring at the bak atm and he rekon they wont do nethin.


if its factory lowered do the hav the same length springs as superlows ?

Yeah your right. I think on the BA they sort of look "Meh" but with the E series, it just toughens it right up. I think the square/rectangular angles of the wheels looks better with the squarer shape of the car.

superlows will lower your car more. if its lowered from the factory it probably has xr6 springs, which are the same as lows.

Nice rims.
