how can you tell the diff between king low and super low fronts (no part #on coil) - and no smart a*** comments bout super low being the shorter please as i dont have both to compare :roll:

whats the free standing height for low & super low front springs and /or number of coils?

Hey mate chasin some similiar info myself ..

the part numbers your after are for a ED-EL 6cylinder:
Fronts: KFFL26-SL (Super-Lows), KFFL26 (Lows)
Rears: KFRL27-SL (Super-Lows), KFRL27 (Lows)

The low's are 'supposed' to drop the car round 30mm and superlows 40 up to even 50mm drop.

Whether any of that helps at all ... ive been tryin to chase down coil numbers etc...yet to call king though...

Forgot to mention that the height drop isnt calculated from the ground to the body of the car but the drop value is calculated as the EBH/Ride height (Eye brow height) this is the vertical height from the middle of the centre wheel cap/hub up to where it meets the wheel guard.

E series falcons,ltd,monts and fairlanes EBH differs from 340-380mm in the sedans/wagons ... think the utes xh,xg etc were slightly higher ebh in the rears.

Hold on ill just go out and take my springs out and measure them for ya! Just kidding but from memory on an EL Fairmont ghia the super low springs were shorter than the stock ones by about 40mm (un-compressed) Not sure if that helps as you may not have the original springs to compare.
