Just after some ideas with what to do with my EF Falcon.

What looks good?
I've seen different cars on lows and super lows/ultra

I just want a second opinion to what looks best and if i go down the path of super/ultra will i need new shocks?

i'm a big noob/beginner at this modification game.

1st stage lowered you should be able to get away with standard shocks, with superlow and ultra low you need new shortened shocks, i have superlows in my eb i love the look of the way it sits, but the car hates speedbumps, driveways, small bumps in the road, and long distance driveing, just bottoms out too much or is just too rough ( long drives), if you arnt going to be doing much long distance stuff get the superlows that way it looks good but you still have clearance or go ultras if you just want a posers show car with no clearance for chicks in the back.

I have ultra lows in back and supers in front, makes the car sit even you are going to need shortened shocks if you lower the car unless you want your car to be unroadworthy and bumpy as all hell

My ED is on Super Lows and it looks really good. The issue is you will need to get a front Camber Kit and have it adjusted to suit, also i was recommended into getting shorten shocks for the rear (the fronts should be ok).

I got this professionally done 4-5 Years ago for around $800, the issue i had is they forgot to tighten the front wheels. Here i was cruising out of the drive way with my mate in the car when the front right wheel shot off smashed the body kit, bent the front right guard and turn my Disc into a square.

Morale of the story - when you get it done, check the wheel nuts before you leave.
