i have king lows in my el, i have between 5-10mm to the lowest legal height. king superlows are 20-40mm lower than that. ring up the rta or whatever over there and ask them how low u can legally go. in sa its minimum height is 337mm from top of guard arch to centre of wheel.

I took my car over the pits for initial registration (it was a repairable writeoff) and it had lovells superlows in it.. they passed me for rego..... they were more concerned with my 18 inch rims but they eventually passed those too.

so superlows or lows are the question? I think that the lows will be the way to go. What do you think anything would be great. Also thanks to all that helped :lol:

Superlows seem to leave less room between the guard and wheel on the rear of the car than the front, so you could go SL front and L rear and it might be fine.

yeah my dad has this on his ED. The SL front isn't that much lower than the Low on my car with lows. He has about the same gap on the back and front so it looks even. When it had SL on the back it looked way too low at the back. My car with lows sits slightly higher at the front but its not much:P
