Let me get this right.
In the front you have: Superlow Springs , Superlow Shocks
In the rear you have: Superlow Springs, Low Shocks

As for choice and price, you have anything from ultima shocks at around $200 for the set.
Or you can go for something good: Koni reds/yellows. Do a search on here for koni shocks. The yellows got a really good review and are meant to be nice and responsive, which is a good thing when you drive a road barge...

Cheers

Sam

nah i originally had super lows all around but my stock shockers died and dad sooked about it being too low and took it to pedders and got just Low springs & shockers put in the rear i did tell him to get shocks for my super lows but no -.-, so now my front has super low kings and rear has normal low pedders.
Been told 169 for monroe shockers in the rear by autobarnsie bro.

Just make sure whatever shocks you get that you intend to use with superlows or even ultralows are "short stroke" shockers, designed to work with shorter/lower springs. Otherwise the shocker will bottom out before the bumpstop is reached. That's a really, really bad thing.

I have pedders comfort gas all round in my Eb Ghia, short stroke versions designed to be used with lowered springs.

$180 sounds like they are "comfort gas" shocks, and I've had a good run out of mine. 100mm is the limit, but I must admit, since the ultralows have been fit in the front of my Ghia, I'm scraping the exhaust on even more speed humps than before. It's over 100mm off the concrete, but I also have 2 exhaust hangers that are stretched, so I need to replace them & then re-measure.

Cheers
