How far do you want to drop? Not all superlows are a 50mm drop, though that seems to be standard

i have got king superlows on my car and as all king springs do, they sag so mine is pretty much dumped but because i have got 18inch mags it isn't very low to the ground but very low above the tyre.

See my gallery for whiteline "lows" (they call them control springs). They also do flatout springs that are lower but harm performance.

the fact that you've got 18" mags shouldn't make any difference at all. when you get a bigger rim your sidewall height reduces (thus the 45 in 235/45R18 as opposed to the 75 in 195/75R14) so as to keep the same overall diameter of the wheel and not throw your gearing and speedo out.

Here's the front of my car. They are king superlows with pedderz sportz ryder shocks. The shocks have a lower spring seat so it's dropped it a fair bit lower than normal. This is beyond legal though, as i measured it and the lowest part of my car sits 75mm off the ground. Looks great though doesn't it!! ;)

Edit: pics working now :)

I have found a great look with Lovells sports low front and super low rear springs. Sorry but I don't know how to compress pics to post them.
