Hi guys, need some advise.

i want to lower my car but still want to drive over speed bumps and have it legal. if i have low springs i dont really need to do anything else to the car. But ive heard if i put superlow on it will be right on the limit of legal and i'll need to change the shocks and put a camber kit in as well. i can justify the kit, but the shocks are a little out of my price range. i think the car has a tow pack on it (which i beleive has bigger or stiffer rear springs (maybe shocks too on the back))

a bit of a dilema. any advise would be greatly appreatiated.
have a look at my gallery too to see why it needs to be lowered

Cheers

sweet. does the front sit just above the tyre? cause mine is supposedly "low" but yeah the tyre is about 1cm below the front arch. the rear is just high so some super lows should straighten the car up. see how that goes when i get them in
