yeah i contemplated SL rears but i carry a boot fool of tools during the week so dont want to lower it too much, figured lows would be the safest option, just want to know what the height looks like when it doesnt have s**t in the back

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.

My old EB with King Lows front and rear, and running 17" wheels with 235/45 tyres.
Also fitted with a Nolathane shim type camber kit on the front end.
I can certainly recommend this setup for both performance and comfort.
