I get all my parts at trade price. Prefer to use Pedders but kings are ok.
Get your prices and decide on what you want and we can go from there.

from my experience i've found pedders do not sit quite as low as the equivelent spring in the king range. hard to compare as well as pedders measure theres different to everyone else. they measure from bottom of rim to guard, instead of centre of hub to guard.

if you are planning on doing springs and struts up the front, monroe have just released an assembled unit. (printed a brochure for them so may not be released just yet) not sure on what springs they use and if they come in non standard heights though.

probably not cost effective for the private buyer either i would imagine.

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.

like i said in another thread, i've found cbc bearingsto be easily the best price on monroe products as they are a monroe stockist. unless of course you have connections and get trade price or something which i suspect you do matt.
