Hi everyone,
Wanting to lower my ef xr8, have narrowed it down to 3 brands of springs..kings, lovells and pedders. Any good or bad experience's with either of these?? Any help would be appreciated.

I would go Lovells. Stay away from Kings.
I've fitted both and Kings made the car uneven from front to back. Lovells were nice and even all round. I wouldnt know what Pedders are like.

I've only ever used Kings and Love them.. got a mate with Lovells and they seem comparable.

i have got king springs on my ef and its fine. a mate of mine had lovells on his el and the height was uneven. the front was way lower than the back. and it was a pretty bad ride. so we ended up selling the lovells and buying king superlows. now he loves it.

I had a very similar experience... put on kings, car didn’t sit level and didn’t seem to handle right.
Whacked on Whiteline the car sits level and the handling was very much improved. :twisted:

mind you that could just be my car. :)
