Tossing up between either Lows or Super Lows.
It appears that super lows may be too low and lows not low enough.
An in between would have been good.
Any Pics with 'Lows' would be appeciated.
Cheers.

Here is one of mine. I must say though that the lows are a little bit lower than an XR suspension set up. maybe 5 - 10 mm at the most though. I also have a bit of trouble when i have another person or 2 in the car with relativly large dips. I could get away with superlows if i were to never take passengers but thats impracticle. My front tyres already scrub on the guard if i hit a bump a bit tooo fats :P as a result i have big chunks of rubber missing lol

This is my car with King lows. I would love to have superlows as they look much nicer but they are just too impractical for me. With lows i can still get down 4wd tracks to go surfing etc. Although it does still scrape at times at least i can still get through.

Its pretty piss to do the rears but fronts are a tad harder. Not sure how much it would cost to install but i paid $200 for front and rear springs and installed them myself in a couple hours.

Great feedback guys.
Just to expand on the topic a little, are lowered springs enough to increase the handling manners of the car by a bit, or would you need to go that extra step and look at sway bars also.
Just out of curiousity, does anyone know what size sway bars the factory EL one are?
Cheers.
