i've got KYB superlows in front & rear - w/ KYB shocks & running 235/45/17's all around - i have pretty bad scrubbing issues on the front left, but the rear is preeeety low! so i can't see why you'd need ultras at the back? :?

I'd check to make sure you have the short-strut shocks in the rears.

If you do then love it for what it is. If you don't then take it back!

Shocks do not affect ride height. Shorter shocks are used so that the springs stay ttrapped.

Something isn't right with those springs. The wheel arch should be below the tyre on superlows. I'd be going back and getting them to check if they ordered the right springs for the rear.

i supplied the springs but i have no idea why its sitting so high at the back... :? would ultra lows drop the car so much as to then have the front sitting higher than the rear?? prob better than looking like a Brumby jacked up the back!! wiil prob consult the pedders suspension place over the issue as the springs have been in 3 weeks...
