Ok. I have some prices on parts.
Repco
King super lows
Monroe GT gas
Camber kit
$633

Pedders
Springs
shocks
Camber kit
$621
Will have to double check the Pedders price.

Fitting would be about $80 depending on how much you want to help.
The only other cost is a wheel alignment.


sweet. id go the kingspring superlows monroe gt's and camber kit. yer id like to help out with fitting so that way i can learn a bit more about the machanics.
ill have to wait a few weeks befor i get it done becouse i just paid for my license for 10 years and also got new plates.

Matthew is very good at this. Just by the look of something he can tell what is wrong and what needs to be done to fix it (he helped my mate with a VK and only glimpsed at the rim to see it had bad camber).

We fitted my front springs in no time at all. He also installed a camber kit on the worse side and made it all good.

If anyone wants something installed then give Matt a ring because he does a f**k excellent job. What i also like is the fact that he has spent 10 years doing this he knows whats good and whats not and DOESNT try to sell you something you dont need.

Just throwing in my approval of Matty as well. Never done my car as I do all my stuff but I've seen his work and, like Ben said above, he knows his stuff! :D

Just had Matt put superlows in front and rear, camber kit in and front gabriel shortened stroke shockers.

Did an excellent job, high quality workmanship.

Will also make a donation on his behalf to fordmods, I saved a hell of allot getting him to do the work. Greatly appreciated.

Going to chuck some lows in the front instead of supers, as supers and the gabriel shockers are sitting at what you would expect to be roughly ultra low height, ie, about a fingers width between the tyre and the wheel arch!

too low at the front or not low enough at the rear in my opinion. supers front and about 10mm shorter at rear is more what i prefer.

are you using struts with lower base because that seems lower than superlow. superlow should be 345mm hub to guard give or take a smidge.

Yes, the gabriels have a lower base....we had abit of a f**k there lol....end result, more like ultra low. Going to stick some low springs in there tomorrow, hopefully it will bring it up level with the rears.

hey guys finally got around to getting my car lowered.
matt is great with suspension work and showed me a lot things about my car i didnt no.
i learnt a few little tricks and got some great advise.
matt is a great bloke to work with and he saved my a hell of a lot of money.
i strongly reccomend him for any suspension work have a chat with him and he will tell you what you need for an awesome stance or awesome handling or just repairs.
