I think just about everyone uses king springs so I just want to know should I go lows, super lows or ultra lows?
I have a 2002 au sIII with 20's on it, I want it lower but I don't want to be scraping on everything.
Here is a link to a couple of quick pics I took, I couldn't find out how to upload so hope it works. :?

My XR8 is on SL Front, SSL Rear and I have enough clearance to not scrape on anything.

Off the topic but last night when I was walking my 2 dogs. I watched a guy attempt to get his lowered VE SS up a standard angled gutter. Took 5 attempts with huge scrapage. Just remember if you go too low it will piss you off.............

I'm currently riding on ultralows in the front & superlows in the rear that are sagged to ultralow height (from towing), and the car sit's & rides pretty good. Yeah some really tall speed humps & driveways are a bit of a pain, but you can take then on a bigger angle to get up & down them without issue.

Cheers

Okay so I think I will go with super lows because I have to go over 4 speed bumps to get into my school car park.
Where would be the best place to them from and will it be okay to us the stock shocks?

Super Lows will be too high! I'm going SSL's in the front of the XR8 soon, SL's are too high!

Will suffice for a little while, the mileage will vary, but having springs shorter than the shocks are designed for can allow the shock to bottom out before the spring does, which is really bad for the shocks life.
