confused king low and kyb

i'm gonna get king low, $130 a pair, and kyb shocks, $260 front and $145 rear, is this a good price and also insurance wont let me go below 30mm, wondering if the king lows will keep it above that or should go for other springs.
any help please

Those prices seem about right.

King lows drop it between 30mm-35mm. My insurance is the same, im giving them the ass and going with justcars insurance, there 50 dollars more a year but u can do what you want. That way ill put super lows on it, **** not being able to go below 30mm its pointless. 130 for the spring s is good price, trade price for them is 98 and there rrp is 144.

Re: king low and kyb

will lovells be higher or whiteline or any other spring that will lower it abt 25mm max so it doesn't look raised with ftr 16' alloys i'm gonna put in it.
also the car is on lpg is well so should i go std height on the back to make it even with the front.
reason i don go to other company is i'm on my p's and insurance under my name is over $2k so i'm under dads.

Re: king low and kyb

You can raise the rear to get the car's "stance" right by using spacers that Superpro sell (get the part number from Superpro site then buy them from Whiteline) - these spacers sit above the top spring rubbers - I have King "Low" springs all round and have one 10mm spacer on each side at the rear so it doesn't sit lower in the rear with a full tank of fuel - it sits noticeably arse up (but not so much it looks bad) with not much fuel and car empty - sits close to level but tad arse up with full tank and car empty - tho interestingly enough it actually takes quite a heavy load to make it look noticeably arse low (ie. full fuel and either boot full of gear and/or adults in the back seat).
