I have a ef fairmont and wont to lower it. i use to have supa lows all round and it sat good at the front but a lot lower at the back. i now have 70kg of stereo in the boot and think that supa lows will just sit stupidly low at the back. i wont to put standerd lows at the back and my supa lows at the front. anyone done this and what does it sit like with a bit of weight in the boot.

Using superlows in the front and lows on the rear is what is recommended to a lot of people running dual fuel so with 70 kg of stereo in the boot I would think it would sit pretty right, if not a bit higher at the rear.

i have superlows on front and lows at the back and the car sits level. i have about 30kg of stereo equipment and this is what was recommended by toperformance in vermont when i had my king springs and koni's installed.

they're very knowledgable blokes, so i'll go with what the pro's say ;)

I wish the back of mine sat lower than the front.
I just got Super-super Lows all round, and the front is awesomely low and the back, is still low, but a little higher than the front, thats with 20-30kg of stereo gear. The extra height in back should kinda help when i'm towing though.

Well then, I guess it all depends if you want springs for aesthetics or for handling. I'd much prefer the latter.. :roll:

the difference made to ride height from 30kg of stereo, is going to be less than half of that made by the difference in a full tank of petrol or an empty one

hey,

i have superlows on the front and lows on the rear. My Ea is dual fuel and also a sub and amps in the boot.

With this combo, the rear of the car sits slightly higher than the front but when with full tank of gas, its sits reasonably flat.

however, even with just lows on the back, it still scrapes some drive ways and bumps sometimes.

cheers
