I'm planning on lowering my car in the next few weeks and thought i might as well change the shocks while im at it. i was thinking about getting some superlows but im not sure about what brand, price or where to buy them from. If i do get the superlows what type of shocks will i need and will i have to do anyhting else and if i get a bodykit will it make much difference to the height or would i be better off getting just lows.
Thanks for any help
Adam

i got an ef fairmont with 18's on it if it makes any difference.

Standard KYB's, or Whiteline's KYB/BOGE's?
I can vouch for the Whiteline combo.
