Thanks guys. How come some cars that hav ultra lows are totally slammed and well mine for example isnt? is this just an inconsistancy of spring rates from the kings?

I reckon that my car is lower than yours just with superlows. Those wheels look to be 17's or thereaboutsand it looks like the tyres are about level with the guards. My tyres are level with the guards but I have 15's.

It could be an inconsistant thing from King Springs because you are not the first person I have heard of with this same problem.

But nice ride mate, looks awsome at that height!

Thanks dude. When i went and ordered them, i was worried that it would be too low. It almost makes me want to get out the grinder and lop off half a coil.

I have only got sock shocks, but i have been told that shocks wont lower it, only make the ride stiffer.

theres nothing wrong with king springs when you get the super lows you should get the lowered shockeis because the stock ones bottom out and you need to remove the orig bump stops and get new ones my fairlane has 2" lower king springs (super lows) and its about 80 to 90 mm of the ground
