Ive got Superlows in my Ef and i put a set of Monroe GT Reflex shocks under it must say im really happy with them. reasonable price too i think i paid about 250 for the fronts and 150 for the rears. i think pedders stuff is alrite too, but if your lookin to spend a bit more Koni and KYB are always nice too

Cheers Jared

mornoe gt gas shocks do the trick, the king spring dealer here recommends you get them. The part numbers are 35-0288, 35-0289 for the front and 15-202 for the rear. (for ef falcon sedan)

I'm running King superlows and KYB shocks all round. Very happy with both ride and handling. KYB shocks are reasonably priced as well.

I've got Pedder SportsRyders with Lows.. A very good shock; not as good as Koni or Bilstein but I think they're better than KYB and Monroe. Obviously, if you don't have the money for these KYB and Monroes are very good value for the money.

NB: Pedders aren't Monroe, only comfort gas are.

Just out of interest, I thought short stroke shocks were required with superlows. Every shop that I have spoken to tell me that Monroe GT do not come in a short stroke, so what shocks are people using?!

Also, Fairmont1998, where did you get your KYB's from in Adelaide?

you dont need short shocks on super lows...
the only reason for short shocks is so when u jack the car up the rear springs dont come out of the seats!

I got them from CV Driveshaft & Steering. 4 Ween Rd, Pooraka. They are the S.A. distributor of King Springs. Helpful blokes there.

Maybe it's personal preference but I think Bilstein are better than Koni and last a lot longer..
