My idea of why you need shortned shockers and struts, is to help trap the springs, giving it less room to bounce side to side, if thats the case, king spring dont know what they are on about.

I got superlows in front struts, and standard height, and are about 1.5 " from being trapped.........


some please correct me if im wrong...

1.5" or 0.5" from being trapped....id personally prefer the springs to be trapped without dramas so i don't have problems that may arise...RW for example. how much do u reckon koni adjustable shocks cost hellbent? for all 4 that is.

1.5" lol....fair size gap ey....once again, standard shox in it.

As for Koni's, I really cant member, Im still trying to get cash to get head fixed, but a month or so back, I was quoted $800 to supply AND fit kings superlows all round and koni's all round to suit.

So my guess would be $350 - $500. Not sure if that was trade price or not though.

Your superlows will need shorter shockers. Monroe do not make a shorter shocker for falcons. They list a shorter shocker but it is the same part number as the standard length shocker. These shocks will not trap your superlows!



not true
