gday.

i have ultralows all round in my car, dropped by 70mm from standard. now the back of the car is sitting up a bit, i want the back to sit a little lower. Lowest springs I can find are a 75mm drop. I dont think 5mm would even bring the back level, so im looking for something along the lines of 85mm - 90mm drop.

Im unsure but i dont think they sell springs off the shelf in this measurement. Im wondering if i can have my current spring reset, but dont know where. Does anyone A) Know of any springs lower than 75mm or B) know where to get springs reset??

Reason being the front is beautiful, tyre just sits in guard, but the back sits up even with a full tank, the back isnt very 'ultralow' at all....

They lowered my ute springs... I never complained!
ohh and cost me $120pr (installed myself)
I guess coils should be cheaper as they're smaller etc.

i had superlows installed in the front and ultralows installed in the rear.. for pics of how flat my car sits check my gallery... i did it this way cos its more expensive trying to custom size the springs when i can do essentialy the same thing with off-the-shelf springs...
