what about body roll? any increase?

Why would the body roll be noticably different??
Control the body roll with anti roll bars
Control pitch & bound with springs & shocks
Control rebound with the shocks

I'd be more curious about the difference in nose dive under brakes, if there is a difference. New shocks & soft springs would be safer than old saggy springs & old shocks anyway.

I agree that super-lows look pretty good,
but I am running lows (kings) only.
Some points regarding lows, and my results are:

- the car maintains some good clearance to the
undercarriage, particularly for country roads.
- minimum clearance I have is about 120mm, which
conforms with the 100mm rule, thus not voiding my
comprehensive car insurance.
- the car now handles about 500% better, as opposed
to standard set-up.....wish I had done it sooner
- I maintain a relatively comfortable ride with 60 series
tyres (@36psi) and the ole fairmont comfy seats..
