none of those cars were even low. these pics are with Pedders touring springs. but now it has King SL


The Subject is called "pics of boxcars with low springs", "low" refers to lower than stock.

If you were bothered to read the post he does want to "dump" his car.

" '"""" "" "" " marks for the win.

My old EB with King Lows front and rear, and running 17" wheels with 235/45 tyres. I can certainly recommend this setup for both performance and comfort.

Hi.

This is a pic of my old EB Sedan. It had S/Lows front and rear, but I added 10mm spacer to the rear to raise it slightly. Something else to consider, is the sort of places you drive. My EB scraped over 50% of the speedhumps I navigated. And if you go S/Lows, you WILL need short stroke shocks front and rear.



BenJ


where did you get your 10mm spacers from and what do they look like? Are they wedges that jam in the spring or are they coils that sit at the base of the spring?
Cheers

I ordered them from a suspension place. They cost $30 for the pair, and are available in thicker sizes.

Here is a pic.

ED sedan on EL XR6 springs.

now thats 4x4, looks standard height to me


Those tyres are 235/60R15's......they are taller than the std 205/65R15's.....which by the way has improved the accuracy of the speedo.
At least I have suspension travel, unlike some with their super lows...riding around on the bumpstops till they are smashed.
The only way to lower them and still have some suspension travel is to have "dropped spindle" stub axle assemblies. My 2 cents.

yeah thats why i dont want to go superlows, seen blokes around here on superlows and watch them bottom out on bumps in the road, there are parts of road around here that are like corrigated and is funny watchin guy hit there head on there roofs cause theres no travel in the suspension and they cop the force of the shocks lol
