I'm also in the same boat, the ghia's have lower suspension already so i have been toying with the idea of going super lows.
Super lows might be a bit low if your worried about height but i'm not sure what other heights are around

i got superlows (kings) but sorry i cant remember the price. i know it was between 300-350 dollars anyway..

they say you should get new shocks and a camber kit as well with superlows , i didnt and have had no probs.. the car had 144 000 kms on it when they went in.. i do however think maybe i should have got lows as i scrape /speed humps are a nitemare and any driveway that is slightly higher than normal..

looks great though

my car gets no attention around frankston, and its not exactly high.
i think you'd be able to get away with superlows., it seems that it differs from car to car though.
tyres won't scrub unless you're running 235's or wider in most cases, in which case rolling the guard can help.
