king springs have a super low set which is 50mm lower than standard,that is all you need any lower your handling will be up the s**t because lower control arms will be on the wrong angle and your car will scrape going over speed humps, trust me I was a wheel aligner and have seen the dummest s**t out there because it looked "cool" I have an eb xr8 with super lows on it and it sucks sometimes, also don't ever go lower at the back because some moron told you to,it's just plain dangerous it gives you extreme oversteer which means you lose you steering when pushed in a corner f**k the drag look because when ya dead no one cares how ya look good luck

Daboss, please learn English and some grammar. Attempting to comprehend your poorly worded posts makes me feel like belting my head against a brick wall. Also, please try not to post incorrect or pathetic technical advice. No one cares if you did the 2 minute toe-and-go "alignments" at the local Bob Jane, so far all I have seen you post is s**t, so please stop.

OP, I would recommend that you go into a reputable suspension shop and ask to see what certain spring heights have previously lowered similar cars to. I noticed you're in Brisbane, a good start would be City Suspension at Slacks Creek.

ultras will look good but when u go that low u have the potential to smash up or Bushes and damage your control arms
