hey all just got my te50 lowered on saturday at suspension city in north melbourne.
i used king springs all round with super lows in the front and super super lows in the rear. im happy with hjow it turned out coz its not too low to be impractical but it got rid of all the gaps.
the guy at suspension city told me thatit should sag about 5mm over the next fornight

Super-low in the rear hey.. thats brave. Hopefully it will sit better than the equiv setup in an E series. I'm considering putting standard height springs in the back to match the low's in the front :?

no i went super lows in the front and super super lows (ssl) in the rear so it sits even, which i think it does.
this is nothing as im used to driving my xr8 arounbd which is super lows compressed 30mm all round.

Sorry my bad, but same concept exists.. having rear springs which are shorter that the front. Anyhow.. looks good as it sits now, can't dispute that!! :D

Looks great Adam. Those front and rear bumper bars really do wonders for the AU shape I'll say that.

thanx for all the knd comments guys im happy with it, hanbdles a fair bit better as well just need to get better tyres for her once these ones wear out.
the headlights come out stock like that on the t-series theyre colour coded to the colour of the car.
i think the chunky bars on the au's and lowring them does wonders. like any other car its ride height and wheels that make any car look good.
ill post up some more pics in a copule of weeks in this thread once she settles
regards from adam
