what i found is that it depends how low you go.
with my ef i went 3 inches at the frount and 3 1/2 at rear with K-MAC springs and it was bouncy and a crap ride so i replaced the shocks with ones more suited and it fixed the problem.
but if you dont go too low by using king springs you should be fine

Should be fine, but if I were you, and the shocks are old, I'd replace them while I was doing the springs.

I put King lows in my EA a few weeks ago using the stock shock absorbers and they are fine.

I believe that if you want Super Lows you need to get the shortened shocks.
