I'm very happy with my setup, cost vs ride quality.
King Super Lows (60mm) all round with BOGE (60mm) shortened shocks all round.

I prefer not to take more than 1 passenger in the back, and majority of speed humps are ok, a couple *just scrape the cat.

i'll take this opportunity to put another pic of mine up somewhere on these forums.

mine is 345mm front - which i think is what is commonly referred to as superlow. rear is 335mm. kings measurements are taken from centre of hub to lip of guard.

i'm another one that doesn't like the factory 'rake' look. sill panel needs to be level with ground.




eb v8: low loud and fast. just how a v8 should be. i guess the big question is, is it fast enough...

as for stiffness, take your shocks out and you'll notice the car isn't very stiff at all. whilst springs can make a minor difference, on a road car the primary function is ride height.

Ok so by using the same shocks in the same car and only changing the springs to find that with the kings springs in you can feel every pebble, bump and change in the road, but with the dobinsons in it's nice smooth controlled ride.

yeah it's the shocks that caused it :roll:
