Lowering AUII

I wanna drop my AUII a few inches, (most likely 3") and I just wanna know when I do it, will anything else need to be changed? How will it be done ?

I know on older cars, they merely just remove a few coils and thats it.

Will it cause the ride to be more harsh or bouncier at all?

Anyone know an approximate price?

Re: Lowering AUII

If you plan on cutting springs it will be very crap ride quality.
You can get king springs variable rate coils i think, they will retain a great ride.
I was going to lower mine with pedders all round, and keep my factory shocks (koni's).
To lower the front you need a camber castor kit to be installed, to correct the alignment.
All up 4 springs and camber castor kit installed drive away, costs me $750.

Re: Lowering AUII

All depends on how low you go whether you need camber kit.
Talk to somebody at susp joints, they will tell you if you need camber kit or not.
