Hi Guys

I am looking at lowering my car more (till there is no wheel well gap) I have been throught the forum till about page 70 and I am after some pics of a BA/BF with Kingsprings ultralow or superlow in it so I can gauge the height, All the topics I have found are with pics of E series and obviously springs will have a bit of a different affect on the new cars. I already have Pedders low springs in the car but there is still a 3cm gap i want to close up. The height from the centre cap to the edge of the tyre is about 33cm and i have emailed Kingsprings and they suggested ultra low at the front and super low in the rear as they only make super low for the BF and that will get it to the size i want.

So any advice and pics would be most appreciated.

Here is where mine sits already, not sure how much it dropped already perhaps 1-1.5inches. i really dont want the car to sit any lower than the edge of the tyre

wel i have spoken to wholesale suspension at Penrith and they recommend super low on the front and ultra low on the rear to give it the desired drop and keep it level, i am going to get them to measure my car to make sure all is good. i will post pics once its done (probably a 3 weeks time) in the mean time if anyone has any BA/ BF lowered please post here so i can take a look

cheers

thanks kenay, your build thread is sweet, what brand and how much were the HIDs, thats what im looking at getting next, were they hard to install in the BA?

I thought ultras would of dropped it more than that but that seems about the height im going for (hard to tell from the shots), do you have a straight side on view?

Can't really tell you what these are but it looks good. Too low though. Had the rears reset about an inch higher from when I got it, but it's still too low. Looking at installing airbags as well to help out when I have the family etc on board.

Thanks the Dog, i think because you have a kit on it that it scraps, as mine doesnt i dont see myself scraping on as much, yeah wild_ef thats what the suspension place has recommended, ultras on the back and super low on the front.I guess at the end of the day i am going to get it measured so it will end up where i want. thanks for the pics guys

cheers

It isn't the body kit that hits the ground as much as the IRS crossmember does :cry: . I think the way you're talking about doing it is the best way ie trial and error because one companys super lows are another companys ultras etc
