I'd say pedders...since they were made for aussie cars...but yeah just depends.

If you can get the same price for either I'd say pedders

by the way wtf is with the capitals? could you like turn them off?

Its probably hard to say which spring is "better".
It usually comes down to a personal preference.
People here are running Kings, Pedders, Dobinsons
and maybe another brand, I cant think of the name.

Anyway, I'm running King Lows with Monroe GT Gas
shockies on my EB and am very pleased with the setup.

spring rate's will be pretty much the same but from my experience the kings tend to sit a lot better than the pedders. i bought superlows from each both claiming to be 50mm lower but the kings sat about 15mm lower. i bought the pedders first but after a few months of driving it and looking like it was just on lows ( i double checked they had given me the right ones) i bought kings and changed them over.

since then i have only ever used kings. not saying its like that in every case but it was with mine.

That is so far from the truth its not funny hey.... I have been in the factory at pedders and witnessed springs being made. Definately not made by kings!! Get your facts right first buddy....

The only thing that you could say pedders does not make is the shocks. Made by munroe, but with totally different specs supplied by pedders. But there are only like 4 or so shock manufacturers in the world...

Thinking of Lovells?

anyways I'd try Dobinsons and how they go, but out of the two I'd say Pedders for some reason...must be the no bull thing :P

I have Pedders in my ED, and have been in a few ED's with Kings, and there is no difference in feel, but the Kings look lower
