Lightbulb Ideas! on lowering ED

Hi guys...
Currently got superlows in front and back. Hate how the rear sits abit higher than front... due to regulations and legalities when lowering a car apparently. Anyhow, as always, efficiency is the key - minimum $$$ spending, with (hopefully) maximum results. Should I just go ahead and slap in ultralows, or get springs compressed or what. I've been contemplating this for ages, and noone can give me the same answer, and I don't want to go ahead and spend all unnecessary money. Hopefully I can get some valid responses (no chopping), and perhaps even some of you guys have had the same problem. Thanks :D

PS. ned is declining information on the lowered suspension of his car lol

Re: Ideas! on lowering ED

If you go ultra lows, only problem will be that no company makes shocks to suit them. So I don't know how you'd go with that. I reckon chop them and get the chopped part heated up and bent back down so it sits properly in the spring seat.

Oh and for the record, im not declining you information!!! lol

Re: Ideas! on lowering ED

well, people put superlow springs with std shocks, so why not get koni shortened stroke shocks, and get ultralows...
