These are the specs from Kingsprings, they are for Lows and Super lows (wheel centre to guard) Ultra Lows i think are 20-25mm lower than Superlows (Illegaly low in most if not all states)
Lowered my EL Fairmont Ghia 2 weeks ago with Superlows (as in pic)

HTG front lowered - 365mm
rear lowered - 370mm

HTG front S/low - 345mm
rear S/low - 350mm

that looks nice =D. but i must say the car seems like it dips forward.......im going with super lows on the back end and lows at the front.

back on topic........dude i think super lows are fine mate. anything lower and u might as well go to the cops and get a fine. super lows are low enough i reckon for convenience. but if u like to ride dirty then go ahead.

good luck mate

Ive measured it and its actually dead level all round. If anything it looks higher on the front. Hard to tell by some of the pic angles.

by all means, you should get ultra lows if you have nothing else for a cop to pick on if he is on a bad day... i guess..

Shim type is set and it will never move (same as original). Ratchet is easier to align but can possibly move if you like hitting gutters and stuff.

i have superlow fronts and low rears (gas tank), i also got a shim type caber kit installed, but it has the max amount of shims in it.

i love the way it sits with a bit of forward rake, oposit to all the local commos who love ultra low rears.

p.s. my sig pic i height un-editied for a side view

My rear wheel arch has this rubber strip on the inside making it look lower on the rear, i guess its there to cover the crappy spot welds and finish!!
