Would Kings Lows to suit EF (and the KYB shocks with them) be interchangable with AU series 2?

yes, the front spring and shock assembly will fit in au, ive got the front springs and shocks from my ed in my au, the only thing i noticed was the au sat a touch lower than the ed did. and rear are a direct fit also providing the au is live axle..

They will fit but they are not interchangable on the front. AU springs are longer so the front will sit higher then your expecting.
Live rear axle is the same but.

As a complete strut they are totally interchangeable.
I had Eibach AU springs fitted to Pedders Saloon car shocks in my car while I had my Koni's modified to use the Tapered AU springs. The ride height seemed the same to me.
