Just bought our ef xr8 and it's got supers, looking to get rid of them.
Same coments as for Pugsley.
Other thing is that our 2 front tyres are s**t (inside edge) because of too much neg camber

i had super lows in my EF and drove it as a daily for 3 years which included numerous highway kms, and it never bothered me in the slightest. you get the odd scrape over a speedhump and yeah you have to go slow up a few driveways but it was well worth it. put a set of lowered shocks and a camber kit in it as well and you will be fine...

I have super lows in my EF xr6 and i don't hate it. Some speed bumps are a problem and yes driveways require some angular aproaches lol. The worst problem is leaving the lights with fury with a full tank of juice and on the street cuts slicks the tail shaft kisses the floor, i could adjust the shocks to fix it though i just have no bothered. But with all the issues i would not go back to lows i think the super lows look alot better.


With the driveshaft hitting the floor get yourself an XR bump stop for the diff or in time a new driveshaft!!

It really depends what you will be doing with your car. If you rarely have passangers or heavy loads and want looks only go the super lows, but with superlows the cost goes up as you will need shortened shocks for the extra suspension travel needed and to trap the rear springs. I have had super lows and was done for 7mm under height so i went to lows which really wasnt a bad thing as i can load up the back seat and have no problems with bottoming out and with a better ride. I have some pics in my gallery.
