I'm not familiar with Ultima shocks, but I think Selby is owned by Whiteline who is now owned by Nolathane - if so they'd be a decent brand. Have you researched the brands using Google?

Ride: AU2 XR8 ute & 91 EA bitsa

Location: Melbourne

I've got Ultima Low Shocks on my EA and the ride is quite comfortable with King Low springs. The damping is good compared to the Monroes I used to have. If the coil height is matched to the shocker it should ride OK.

I'll vouch for the Selby springs, got em in my XR8 with KYB gas-a-just shocks. Whole thing sits nicely low n level.
Still only the standard swaybar but it handles like it's on rails yet doesn't rattle your teeth out on the corrugated back roads we've got around here.

We did a mates Ef fairmont with this kit before he sold it to a young fella, felt very saggy, the lows made it sit like superlows, looked great, but compared with what I had in at the time in my EF (kings lows and good standard munroe shocks) it was quite s**t to be honest.
Just my 2 cents, but if you are gonna upgrade suspension, dont forget the swaybars, it makes a hell of a diffrence.

i have king springs cause i got them second hand cheap but my mates have dobinsons and they ride better plus you can get them pretty cheap on ebay.

I haven't been in a car with boge shocks/struts but have only read good things about them.
