well the problem with mods like this is that there are a million different opinions as to whats the best way to do it, what to use etc etc.
I'm 98% sure when i get my EF lowered (sometime within the next month or so) i'll be going for King 'Low' Springs (so that should end up being about XR height - 30mm lower than standard). I've been told these are the best, to stay well away from Pedders or Lovells, and not to worry about a camber kit as 30mm lower wont really affect tyre wear.
So - does that sounds about right? Anybody have a different opinion, and if so, why?
Get the best you can afford and go as low as legally possible.
Pedders are rather stiff, great if you want solid as a rock handling like a gokart, not so great for real world driving though. I have them currently and would never buy them again, I'm now looking at Koni or maybe Whiteline as the next option
Lowest legal for EF2 is 350mm front and 340mm rear(hub to guardline)
get the castor/camber kit for sure. i didn't and paid the price of new front tyres after 6 months. i suggest kings low. super low look good but are hopeless when the car gets loaded up with people or luggage.
I went through Pedders, and while the ride was stiff, it was what I wanted. Needed to be lower though, but I couldn't be bothered paying for it all again. I probably would have gone with SuperLows, in hindsight. Pedders just never got the right hieght even though they did it twice, the first time, the car was higher than stock! I don't know what they did, but second time round it was at least lower...
