if you go much lower, after a while you will get sick of being f**k up the a** over every bump and have to find alternate routes so you wont encounter speed humps, you will also have trouble if you have a angled driveway.......i speak from experience
cheers

i've got KYB shocks & lovell springs - from what i've been told, its just a wee bit lower than superlows - but not much - and that is low enough! any more is really just getting impractical!

True, i have a flat driveway and found the thing that p****d me off was speedhumps!
Working at a major shopping center there is tones of them and they arent small!

I agree, i like the wheel arch to sit even with the top of the tread itself, 1cm lower max looks ok, anything else looks *stupid/odd* low

Yeah well on my EL I got about 1.5 cm gap between the tyre rubber and me wheel arch and it looks just perfect. I still have issues though with some speed humps and angled drive ways. Nothin more annoying than hearing that," CRRRRUNCH " as you drive over it. I always have to get out and check for underbody damage all the friggin time. Most of the time it is the chassis getting a pounding, sometimes to me Cat Converter gets a scrape. I had to replace it a few months ago cause it ended up getting smashed too much. Thats all the issues I have with only being "Low" and so I dare not even think of all the grief with being "Superlow!"
You can get an idea of just being "Low" with this link to pics of my EL

I love the look of dumped Falcons/Fairlanes but another thing you have to consider is the amount of play in camber adjustment.. Or doesn't anyone care about tyre wear these days. :roll:
