Hi guys/gals, new to forum.
Have bought ef xr8 and found it has super low pedders springs with matching shocks.
Too low for the drive way and speed humps.
Looking to raise to std xr height.
What springs to get? Lovells, kings or pedders.

Anyone's opinions?

I've had Kings and Lovells in E series cars. I would go Lovells. The Kings I had set the car uneven a bit but that was on one car the other car I did with Kings was fine. I'm very fussy with the height being even.

I had lovells lows in my other car and before that kings... they were both lows and i found the lovells to be less bouncy than the firmer kings but just as good handling wise... both were with monroe shocks.

Hope this helps

I've got lovells xr spec coils in my fairmont and it's fine, handles speedhumps, driveways etc without any dramas (providing you dont let the other half drive the car - a lowered car is NOT meant to do 50kmh over a large speedhump!). I've got boge shocks in the car to suit the springs too. Just my thoughts, comments and opinions. Cheers :)
