you can use xr6 shocks but i would recommend getting shortened ones...its not that much more expensive and will give a much nicer ride

dont use Gabriel shock with king supers. The Gabriel shocks have the plate an inch lower then standard and that means the car sits lower. 1800 on here lowered with Gabriels and Supers and it lower then ultra's.

The KYB shocks seem to be the best by. Monroes are s**t if you are going for performance.

You will also need a camber kit so you dont destroy tose lovely 19's in 5'000km. Use a Nolathane or KMAC ahim type. The other type is s**t and doesnt work well.

i had an ed on super lows and 19s and it was fine.
Now its on ultra lows all round and i need the front gaurds rolled as they scrape a air bit. looks freakin awesome, easy to lower aswell.
