depends how steep your driveway is..i have superlows all round and its not too bad, only certain driveways and speedhumps get me, and its mostly just a pain with a full carload or the boat on the back..

ultralows look damn sexy with a nice set of rims though

Superlows all round looks real nice. With superlows (and ultras) you'll need shortened shocks though to trap the springs properly and to stop bottoming out. i think you can get away with lows all round with stock shocks though, but it still looks a little high imo. Some people go lows up front and superlows in the rear which is what im planning to do.

It also depends on what shock/struts you are using in the front though, as some have lower mounted spring seats (eg pedders) that effect ride height to a degree. I got pedders sports ryder shocks all round on pedders lows. Front is pretty low considering its only on low springs, but the lower spring seat on the struts makes it lower than normal. The guard sits just above the tyre. The rear guards however are about 25-30mm above the tyre so ill need superlows in the rear to even out the ride height.

The standard ride height that falcons came out with from factory is pretty ridulous :lol:. That sort of suspension setup screams 'off-roader'

SuperLows Are the go imo. And plus don't have 2 worry about popping the guards out if it interfers...
