I have dobinsons in mine aswell. Can't remember if there is just low or super lows as well, but I got the lowest one and then also got the lowered strut for the car which lowers the car an additional 20-25mm.

The car is sitting very low!!! I only have 15's and the guard is sitting about halfway between the top of the tyre and rim.

I still get an awesome ride out of it. The suspension is stiff, without being harsh. Hard to explain but the ride has to be experienced to be believed!

Hey Joolz, glad the springs are working well for ya.

I actually considered Dobinsons, but I couldn't get them
easily here in Lismore NSW and would cost a bomb for
delivery from their factory.
Im running Kings and they go pretty well too.

Thanks guys. Phongus when you do give me a yell and ill give you a hand, lowering doesnt cost that much if you are only going lows as shortened struts and shocks arent required. Springs are around $230 camber caster kit $120 and alignment around $50. You can get away with the camber castor kit if only going lows, just the toe may have to be adjusted. I did a mates EA with supers a few months back and told him to have the alignment checked, he still hasnt done it but the tires arent scrubbing at all. I have to check up with the place i got my Dobinsons from to see if they still stock but been to busy at work to see them.

I already have a camber/castor kit...it uses shims or whatever that means. But yeah going super lows on the rear and lows on the front to level her out. Not that expensive but I'm going to need every penny if I'm doing my other project.
