I'd like to know what the heights are (wheel arch to tyre) with different springs. Below is reference to an EF. But heights should be similar.

I'm interested in peoples heights with different springs.
So please copy and fill in the following with any additional info. Heights, Spring Brands etc.

- Standard Springs = mm
- King Low = 30mm drop
- King SL = 2.5" drop ?
- King SSL = mm

- Standard = mm
- King Low = mm
- King SL = mm
- King SSL = mm

would tyres size make a difference in how far it is from the tyre to the guard wouldnt it be better to measure from where ya put the jack to the ground then for didfferent cars it would be closer or am i wrong??

tires/wheels shouldnt make a difference because when u get larger rims your tires have a smaller sidewall to maintain an overall diameter of approx 25.8" (give or take a bit).

heres my experience:

Stock EB Fronts -3 Coils = Car doesn't bounce anymore and see attatched picture

Stock EB Fronts -2 Coils = Car bounces a tiny bit (not a luxury ride but handles better) and also see picture 2 (below)

KFRL-18 (Super Low Kings for rear of XF) -1 Coil from non-progressive bit = nice and low but spongier than spongebob squarepants also see picture 2 (below)

Picture 1: ... 2&maxw=640
Picture 2: ... 0&maxw=640



EBII 4.0L GLi | T5 | 3.27 Spool | POD | KKK K27 Turbo | 600x300x76 FMIC | 40mm Wastegate (dead) | RPD Stg1 Cam | B&M Launch Control | Thermos | 3" Dump | Twin 2.25" Zorst | 197kw@3500rpm, 7psi LEAN!
