lowered pursuit

Hello to all!!

I have fitted the herrod lowered suspention front and rear with the caster camber kit. I must say handilling is fantastic and it look FANTASTIC!! BUT the rear is very creaky and it is bottoming out big time. Was wondering if anybody has this suspension and also if anyone has the same problem.
Also if by changing the shocks to firmer ones wether it will eliminate the problem?
Thanks guys!!

Re: lowered pursuit

bossn, what is bottoming out the suspension front and rear or is the ute (muffler) touching speed bumps or the road when driving fast through a dip ect? I have the kingspring suspension under my BA XR8 ute and have'nt had trouble at all.

Fordy, here's a couple of pics of the springs and the measurements from the centre of the wheels to the top of the wheel arch. For a idea of how (low) your ute would look measure the same way. Notice how the back spring is inverted to lower the back of the vechicle. King Springs can set up your ute to what height you require.

Re: lowered pursuit

I think 300kg would pull her up. I had approx 200kg on yesterday and the ute dropped 15mm in the back which still left about 20mm before the rubber buffers start touching. Don't forget it has a canopy as well that proberly weighs between 80-100kg.
