Thanks for all your advise,, have decided to go the Low's,, and hopefully putting them on tomorrow,, but true 15" rims arent the best thing but they'll do for now,,, unless someone wants to donate a set of rims :wink: ???

but the bloke said if i dont like them i can take them back and change for super lows,, i just dont think i can be stuffed changing them regardless how bad they look..

i think you have made a good decision going with the lows.. hope you like them. dont forget to allow them a bit of time to settle as well, as they will settle lower than the inital height.

if only we always drove on perfectly flat roads without pot holes, speed humps and driveways....

It's a bit late but pic's of my car before and after with the whiteline low springs are in my gallery. I like them. The rear went down heaps and the front just a little.
The telling point is I can take speed bumps at without slowing down or bottoming out, someting the standard suspension wouldn't do (it would bottom out on the far side of the bump).

I am putting super lows in the front and lows in the back of my EF sedan, I have ordered them, I just wondering if I need to change shockers as well.

Also while the front end is apart is there any bushs or rubbers I should also change

Thnks

My EL has superlows all round with my 17" ANZ FTR's looks quiet good.

I was pulled over by the fuzz once for "being too low" He pulled out his book, and measured my eyebrow height, and I was 2-3mm above the legal limit..

Went with King Lows and havent looked back once.. Car sits very nice with small gap in arch, and handle a lot better. So i have to say that im very happy with them and in a way glad i didnt go superlows...

then again if i had lower profile tyres,, i would have wanted it lower,, but at least it clears quite good now.


Thanks for all your feedback.

yea i went lows all round, the back is a smidge lower then the front :?
i am more then happy, would not want it any lower i dont think. My Mud flaps scrape on big speed humps... but who cares they are plastic!
Though i do have to get around to getting my guards rolled and setting up my konis. :)
