kings are $120/pr

monroe gt gas are 90/pr rear and $90 each front.

that equals about $750 in parts. easy to do yourself, or get a member to help. where are you in adelaide. i've done it that many times its not funny. there is also another thread in this forum of a guy offering help in adelaide!

monroe don't do lowered shocks but i've been using them with superlow front ultra rear for years and never had a problem.

if you decide to get monroe's get them from cbc bearings as they are a monroe stockist and a fair bit cheaper than buying through an auto store.

I'm south in woodcroft by the way.

Do it yourself and hunt around for a good price. I'm in Adelaide and can give you a hand if you want.

I lowered my car on superlow Pedders springs with Pedders shortened Sports Ryder shocks on the front and Low King Springs with Koni adjustables in the rear all for under $400.

EDIT: Only just realised when this thread was started. Didn't realise someone was thread mining... :x

the best shocks are koni adjustables but there about $800 worth of shock for front and rear. The rear is piss easy to do yourself and the fronts aren't to bad either

the ones that u can adjust by winding them up and down, i think it adds pressure on the springs
