Re: how low?

What do mean by "doesnt sit to well" ?
does the car not sit level or is the gap between the tyre and wheel arch still to big for your taste or?
what size rim and tyre are you running?

Re: how low?

Lowering your car with ultra lows will greatly effect the wheels camber, especially with irs, making all tyres wear out quickly on the inside of them. You can fit shims to the original top arm mounts to fix this or even install a camber castor kit.
The minimum headlight height is 500mm, this measurement is taken from the ground to the centre of the headlight, or i think 100mm from the ground to the lowest point on the car.
More information about this can be found at http://www.lovells.com.au/faq.php?q=5 which tells alot about lower a Vehicle.
