Yes, not sure, and yes. King springs generally sit lower at the rear than the front, and so having higher springs in the front, will look like its trying to take off. :)

I have Kingspring std. fitted to the rear of my EA... How much lower are the LOWS... KFRL-27's????

And... do I need to get shortened shocks for the LOWs or are they only needed for the Super Lows...

I'm kinda happy with the rear height, but the front sticks up too much to my liking... can I fit LOWs at the front without replacing the shock as well or needing a camber kit???

Thanks guys!

Camber kit is always nice to have but not necessary.

Lows do not require shortened shocks.

Lows sit about 1" above the tyre.

Having the heavier bigger V8 up the front the front of his car might sit level tehn?

hey,

its a good price.

i am currently running Kings Superlows on the front of my EA while Kings Lows on the rear due to the gas tank.

i am not running shortened shox and have had no probs. The fronts have standard shox while the rear has Pedders Sports Riders.

i am however, running standard 15inch Snowflakes.

cheers
