I'd reccomend whiteline/bilstein.
If thats a bit too pricey..
then id reccomend Lovells and KYB.
If thats a bit too pricey...
Save up.

Well heres mine with king super lows and munroe gas shocks. All i done was get heavy duty shocks on the back as i tow daily and the load doesnt affect the car. As for ride you dont know the diff as it still as soft over the bumps as before it's only 1000 times better at highway speeds as there is know drift and wandering around. Heres a pick anyway.

Tickford Snorkle + K&N Pannel filter
Clear Indicators
Tint
Lowered with heavy duty shocks on the back
Rims (maybe something with Chrome Dished 19's !! but need about 4k :( )
Single stage shift kit (anyone got this? experience with it?)

Future plans
Full Zorst system
Sound system
Neons (just joking)

Future future plans
AUIII TICKFORD xr8 engine
Manual Conversion
Massive 30psi turbo kit
Massive FMIC
Hopefully 350+ kW

Yes there cadillac wheels and i've got the fully adjustable shift kit which is worth the extra dough. Easier on the unis when towing.

IMHO, dont go the King Springs, they are known to vary in height (as in, the left front may be a diff height to the right front).. ive known of many people being very disappointed in the King's, very over-rated...

On a sexy car like that, in my opinion, save up that extra dough, in the end you will have a guaranteed quality lowering job, and the ride will feel a lot nicer (and safer)

And with lowering the car, you will want to swap over the shocks, especially since you carry large loads...

Congrats on such a beaut car

Dave
