Hey guys,
My old man jus bought a DF LTD. Its lowered but i just wanted to know if they are lows, superlows or ultras. Also it is on gas so that may make a difference. Here are the pics:

Looks like lows to me. I've got super lows with stockies and the wheels sit much closer to the guards than that.

Pretty sure there lows..

Jack one side of your car up and check if the spring has a code on it. I dont know what the code for lows is but Ultra lows are marked as 'SSL'


cheers, Nathan

I'd say superlows, ive got them in my fairmont ghia and it sits about the same height as that...lows have a bit of a gap between the guards.
Are you sure they're kings springs?

Hey guys,
It doesn't have the SLS in it anymore. And the springs were yellow iirc. I can't check the codes on the springs yet, the car isnt ready to be picked up yet. My old man jus drove it home on a 'test drive' LOL.

I'm so jealous it makes my car look more like a 4WD..

lows... cos being an ltd and on gas (having being heavy plus extra weight) with superlows it would be absolutly dumped or slammed on its wheels. (in most cases)
