first post! w00t! :)

I recommended king lows, but he would like it as low as he can go without any hassles with speedbumps and shopping malls and stuff, or are super lows ok on stock wheels?

Anything i need to know that's tricky about doing the work (I do all my own work and stuff usually :) )

Thanks heaps!

WTF is wrong with Timmy88EA????

Anyway, superlows are very low as the name suggests, you'd be scurbbing on most things. Lows are the preferred choice. Just be careful when pulling the springs out if you're not using a spring compressor, as it can bounce, and it can bounce hard, and spring into your face, or worse your crutch. Thats about all I cant hink of, otherwise everything is just a straight swap over.

And just on a different not, For your car it says Ford Celica??? just thought Id mention that...

thanks guys that's awesome!

yeah I got compressors here and stuff so that should be cool, done the suspension on my car a number of times (H&R stuff now :D)

So there are "SUPER LOWS" and "ULTRA LOWS"?

their website is uber unhelpful :(

His thoughts were as low as he can go without creating problems. My advice was "king lows" however.. if super lows can go on no problem, then he would be stoked with that too :)

It is like a 1990 Falcon "S" with the factory alloys and the red stripe around it and stuff

Thanks heaps for you helpful thoughts and for not harassing me for my toyota ;)

Yeah, I chose "Toyota Celica" but it guess the website couldn't stand that I didn't have a ford and changed it lol.. I will try again

King superlows would be fine. I think ultra lows would be too much.

Ultra lows are basically uber-super lows. hehe
I know of an EB with superlows. It looks GREAT, just scrapes on a couple of speedhumps and what not (because the muffler hangs donw really low!).

I plan on putting super lows in my ED. Eventually.....
