King Springs

Hi everyone, Just looking around for king sprinks and $160 was the cheapest i could get for all four low's. Super lows to low for me because i drive from geelong to Melb so to bumpy for me. WHat i want to ask is that a good price for 4 and also would it be ok to use with the shocks i have in at the moment. I have monroe sensatrak on the back and pedder on the front not sure what they are specifically called. Will they bottom out or should the be fine until i can afford 4 new shocks all round meant for the lowered srpings. Anything else i should get or do while im in the process.

Thanks Steve

Sensatrac will ride very hard. They are supposed to be softish at first and the greater they are compressed the harder they get. With your car lowered now they will be in this hard zone all the time. I had this problem with my EB.

Yeah I'd say wait and get shocks and springs at the same time. Can't go wrong with King either.

how low?

Not sure if it is a good price but cost price of superlows front and rear come to about $150.


How low are the king springs?
i am considering getting lows or superlows.
i know superlows are rated at 55mm. Do you guys know how low low king springs are?
Will the size of my wheels affect how low i should go??(wheels come after im lowered)
Thanks

the price that you got for king springs is good, and with the wrong springs it will be a hard ride, I can tell you, I own an EB with King super low springs and monroe Gt gas shockers and the ride is bloody hard (but it handles alot better) !

Thats actually a VERY good price. trade price is $90 a pair... so thats cheaper than trade price!!

Low King springs are cool. I have them in my baby. Nice low stance. I have Koni adjustbles too (I have them at 1 turn from the hardest setting) and I love the handling, and feel of the car.

"Normal" low springs are generally around the 32mm (1 1/2") height. I think Selby do an "extra super low" for that lowrider look! I have "normal low" in the front of my EB with "super low" in the back. I tried the extra super low" but it sat down too low (looked tough though!). As it is it sits a bit higher at the back especially when low on fuel.

DansEdgli, don't do it mate. get the wheels first, especially if you intend to go bigger than standard. too many times i have seen people lower the hell out of their car only to find they have to pull all their new suspension back out again to fit the wheels they want.

choose some wheels, drive it for a while and then do the lowering job.
