superlows lower the car 2 inches.
ultralows lower the car 3 inches.

just go superlows especially if you are going king springs cause they sag anyways.

I didnt know you could get ultra low. I reckon that would be too low. Superlows are perfect.

I'm not sure if Super-Super Lows are the equivalent of Ultra Lows.
I hardly have any problems with scraping. I've also got the Full Tickford Bodykit, so the lower lip, you've just gotta take driveways and so on slowly, thats all. Sits legal at 100mm off the ground too.
If you want, there's a few pics in my Gallery of how its sits, on 19's.

lovells offer different stages of lowering, Lows and super lows for e series non xr, Super lows and ultra lows for xr. Therefor the lows are the same height as standard xr. I fitted Ultra lows to a mates el Futura, it was way to low, Had approx 60-70 mm ground clearence, RWC is 100mm. looked f**k mad though!

Super lows xr spec are fine.

i got spuerlows for the back of my EL fairmont n lows at the front. Its been lowered 1.5" all the way around. The guy recommended superlows at the back, so that the front n back end would look even, and yes it did the trick. I have had no issues with "bottoming out" even with 3-4ppl in the car...i did however have to get rid of my mud guards....driveways n speed humps were shredding them apart on approach n departure. The ride is now considerably bumpier...but that might have something to do with the fact i didnt get the shocks changed at the same time...they will get changed next week...hopefully this will improve the ride quality a bit. Also a lot more vibration as soon as u hit 100kmh+

i put superlows (kingsprings) all round on my EF, with the 16s there is a small gaurd to tyre gap, but i dont have trouble with speed humps or driveways, just gotta take them slowly if they are steep... i reckon superlows are about the right height, and i have never been hassled by the cops about it....

Super Lows from Kings with just sit you on the 100mm clearence allowed. Ultra lows are just too low for the road but must agree they look good.

THis is my car on superlows...


Is legal for QUeensland. I go over speed bumps and humps slowly but thats cuz they got done a few dyas ago, I still enjoying the feeling of it.

Id go superlows, not ultra lows. With ultras every speed bump risks smashing gearbox and things like that out.
