are you gonna install the shocks/springs yourself?
i paid around 480 for my springs/shocks.
so far mine dosen't need a camber kit, but a couple more thousand k's and i'll know for sure.

yes you need shortened shocks as the valve in the shock doesn't sit right and wears out quicker, and when the car s raised or you go over a bump to quick the spring can unseat itself.

ring up coventry's and tell them you have superlows on your car, and that you want the shorterr shocks to suit them.
if you want the number i can get it if u like.
