Here's the king springs catalogue.

You will want to install shortened struts/shocks at the same time IMO :)
Recently lowered mine with Kings Lows rear and SL fronts.

Cheers for the comments.
The king springs part no. are KFFL-57SL (Front) and KFRL-67SSL (rear).
I just had standard height shocks installed. I can get the part no. for you if you'd like.
Ride is definately firmer, but handles alot better. Makes me realise just how s**t SA's roads really are!
Great going around corners now, even for a fairlane. A definate improvement. I might be able to keep up with everyone one else through the hills... well maybe not. :lol:

Thanks for the replies fellas. SA roads are s**t house (and they wonder why there are so many 4wd's on our roads) which is why I asked about the ride. Anyway will look into it. Thanks again!
