Hi guys, i have been given Super lows for the front of my car, now i was wondering what will bring my back end level/slightly lower then the front, do i go superlows as well or what do i do, keep in mind i have spare wheel and a reasonably heavy sub box in the boot.

Cheers Josh

I think the problem would be something else because why doesnt everyone else have their
wheels hitting the inside of the arch?

I agree, I've got no drama with 225/50 R16s on the Sprint, and thats got ultralows.
Fairmont is fine with 235/45 R17s and superlows, neither have guards rolled.
The front tires have lipped the guards a bit themselves, and I don't go driving at high speed up gutters.

And I think you'll need ultralows to make the back sit slightly lower then the front with supers.

Yea agreed with above as i got the Superlow springs today and from what the guy told me is the it will be 350mm (from centre of hub to wheel arch) lower then standard, so i got the measuring tape ot and measured it up and it looks like i will be going back and gettin superlows after all (no added cost), aslo will my tyres rub as i have stated i do have 215/60/15's on the car, and will be exhaust be the 100mm of the ground running this combo??

Thanks heaps
Josh

It might clip guards and grab them on the front if you often drive up kerbs while turning, quickly.
It won't 'scrub' persay.
Chances are it'll be too low.
