KYB Shocks and King Spring setup would set you back around $600-700 supply only. Allow $200 odd labour.

I'd highly suggest going for new shocks if you're going superlow else the car may handle worse than it does now. Also may be worth noting that optimal handling is often found from 'Low' springs, going too low with 'superlow' style springs will result in a loss of handling performance.

The price you quoted from eBay for the king springs is spot on.

The front shocks on falcons are struts.

KYB, Ultima, Koni, Bilstien are all worth considering. Obviously handling performance will be reflected in the price tag. I've sold and also used lots of KYB in superlow applications without any issues, they're excellent value for money.

Another recomendation for KYB's.
Great bang for ya buck.
1040 ain't that bad for shocks and springs fitted.
If you don't want to fit them yourself, be prepared to pay for labour, because while its not a hard job, it's not real easy either.

Ha ha, it's your car, not mine!
We just gave you our opinion!
I'm not making your decisions for you.
