hello,
ive got an ef futura and already have king spring superlows in the front and king springs lows in the rear.
if i replace my rears from lows to super lows, how much lower will the rear end drop? another thing, will lowering the rear effect the front height by any chance?

also, i am sitting 110mm from the lowest point of my car (the cat). so if i do change over to superlows in the rear, roughly how much lower will my cat drop? roughly under 10mm???
...by the way, does anyone have any king springs super lows for the rear of an ef futura they wanna get rid of?
yeah i know im a drainer, lol
any help/ideas would be much appreciated.

thanx guys
biff

hey how are ya. superlows in the rear will bring the guard down roughly in line with the tyre give or take a few mm. your fronts wont move. and if you want i can get you a set of king superlows for $100 a pair delivered. Im in greensborough so its no drama to take a short drive to lower plenty pm me if your interested :lol:

Off topic slightly. But Lovell claim to be good quality Australian made springs, can King Springs make the same claim to fame?

(I'm wondering which springs to buy for my Fairmont)

it depends what does it for you, ive had pedders springs in mine and theyre great. atm ive got king super lows front and rear in my ed and they are equally great. Spose it comes down to personal preference. King Springs have been around for a while and you dont stay in business by manufacturing s**t products. I will say this though after dealing with pedders springs and recently going to kings. You will get more accurate height assesments with kings plus most people use them so you get a rough idea of what to expect

I just want a spring that is the best possible value for money.

Also, whats a good shock absorber that will NOT bottom the car out on super lows and will last while maintaining a sporty, but comfortable ride? lol.

Supercheap auto have Gabriel, they any good?

cant tell you for sure how good gabriel shocks are as ive never used them. but at the end of the day you get what you pay for. monroe shocks are good for there price but money isnt an issue then you cant go past pedders lowered gas sports ryder struts and shocks. speaking from expreience these are wicked
