It did change the handling....more than expected :? It now corners very tight, it was good before, but is noticably better now. I was never happy with the lows ride height, but was more concerned about still being able to get down the driveway.........not any more, the supers are here to stay :D

Only thing that annoys me with superlows.. is it's nearly impossible to get under the car..

I have to jack my car up just to get my small trolley jack under the front crossmember of my EA... can't use my ramps as the front bar hits..

looks great and handles joy but geeze its a mongrel to work under them...

:lol: I'm hearin ya! Lucky I have a sloped driveway, I had to angle the ramps down the slope so I could get it up to tighten the lower shock mounts :x
Ever tried laying on a work trolley on a slope....not good!

Awesome rims there Tezza.. your obviously a man of discerning taste..

Are you using Superlows?

From memory i think the front are kings super lows the backs are kings that have been chopped a couple of coils.....

yeah.. extending the ramps with wood to shallow the ascent works too.. but it's a pain in the butt because my car is so low that that can sometimes be a pain as well.. (ie pushing the brick and ramp along )....

hopefully it won't be as bad on the EL... different bar design for one thing...
