Just finished installing new Ultima shortened shocks and Dobinson super low springs in the front (lows in rear) The ride feels a bit firmer but better over larger bumps. The Monroe GT's didnt work too well even with lows all around (rear bottoming out) The super lows dropped a little more than i thought but i dont really mind. The Ultimas cost only a little more than the GT's (retail) i picked up the Ultimas for $440 front and rear (rears heavy duty)

There is a slight rake of about 10mm and the tank is just under half full. It will sit level if not about 5mm lower on the rear with people in the back.

Thanks EB, im just glad that its all finished now and roadworthy (sufficient suspension travel) For those who say that Monroe GT's work well with Lows and Supers obviously havnt driven on shortened shocks with a lowered setup.
