Okay i have just been quoted $500 to fit superlow king springs all round. The el falcon in question has only done 98000km and i don/t really want to replace the shocks at the moment because there in as new condition. Is $500 a good price to make me car look horn..............

cheers.....................

fitted that probably isnt bad. You may want to look inot a camber kit though. You MAY need new shocks in order to keep your springs trapped though, as your current ones may have a stroke that is larger than the uncompressed length of the spring. The springs normally retail for around 200 a pair, sometimes 220.

cos with standard shocks they travel further and with shorter springs the springs simply fall out
