I cant see why not but if you were towing all the time like a tradesman you would go for a different setup (heavier springs) but the comfort would be affected. The original suspension is ok for towing.

I wanted to go super low with my car....though after loading my car up with stuff for the weekend last week....i think i might stick to practicality since my car was sitting quiet low when full and don't want to risk it with a car load of people =D....sux though not to have it lower because the occasional full load =(

Yeah going well. nice smooth ride but takes sharp corners good (car steps sideways instead of body roll) It actually feels better than the stock suspension. Even after all this research and stuff people still buy King Springs apart from a few, those few wont be dissapionted

The place i bought mine from also do internet orders, their details are earlier on in this thread. Not sure how much the postage is but call them anyway. They will probarbly be cheaper than you can get over there in Perth.
