50mm is 2 inches any more then 2 inches from standard and its considerd illegal but every 1 does it and gets away wit it and king springs dont go any lower then 2 inches below standard on any car.. my mate has a bmw and put kings as low as he could go and all he got was another 2 inches taken off

Pedders are expensive. I've spent a bit of money there. If you go to a place like Beaurepairs then you get a granny quote, enough to satisfy your initial complaints. Expect to pay around the $500 mark. Problem solved.
Asking after prices at Pedders is what you pay for the suspension to be brought to new again. Works fantasitaly, and the quality is high. As is the price.

Ride: EF Falcon

Location: Perth

I recenetly (3 weeks) put king spring Super Lows in my car. I left the standard shocks in it because they were fine. The wheels sit just under the gaurds on 15' and IMO i think it looks great.

It cost me 200 bucks for the complete set and i put them in myself took bout 2 hours. Its a lot easier than people make it out to be.

I would recommend king springs over pedders but thats my opinion.
I could be wrong

I would of put new shocks in though cause the originals will probably wear out heaps quick. Now that your ride height is lower. Like yourself I didn't change my shocks when I got my EL lowered and after a while she just started to bottom out all the time. Sometimes in the worts places. Yeah but King Springs are heaps better than Pedders.

yeah do the shocks, the back shocks are simple, don't need to remove the spring, but the front, you do, but if you have done it before, it's simple.
i paid $230 for a set of monroe gt gas shocks.
