there were alot of ploblems with the wishbone riseing when trying to put the new spring in so we did a bodgy and used a bit timber to pry it down of the disc to Chassis if that makes sense, but it would have helped if we had better gear to work with as the spring compactors were pritty old and chunky

on that note aswell, Ive decided to purchase some super lows next week. On an ef, can anyone show me pics of super lows all round... will it drop even or because the back is much higher then the front, is the back still going to be higher? or would the back supers be even shorter than front to compensate for the back being higher?

Dont forget to get it wheelaligned when they are fitted and about 2,000km down the road when the springs have settled.
