EA - Front Struts and Shocks

Im looking into lowering my EAII by arround 30-50mm (king low or super low).

Looking through my Gregories manual, its somewhat ambigious what is the front strut. It calles the uint that contains the shock absober and mounts to the lower arm as the suspension unit.

I have been advised that if i drop the suspension more than 30mm, shortened struts are nessacary. Looking at the diagram, the shock/strut seems to be one componant.

Im installing all new Bushes front and rear at home and as such will have the suspension out so installing new springs wont be to much drama. My proposal is the follwowing.

Use King Lows, in conjunction with shorter shock absorbers
Use King Super Lows, in conjunction with shorter struts, and shock absorbers.

whats peoples opinon of king springs, or should i look into pedders?

Is this the correct way to go about it?


Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.

Ill take it as a complement i think.............

As you are in Adelaide talk to Stable Wheel Alignment Research Rd.Pooraka they are very helpful on advise.About 4 years ago they lowered my EB2 with King Springs and Cofab shockers for $525 including wheel alignment and 2 years ago they swapped my rear EB spings with my Rear AU springs to beef up the rear of the AU which was too soft for $70
