King Springs

Today I went and priced some Low King Springs...

$260ish full set from Autobarn
$380ish full set fully installed from Tyrepower

Anyway I noticed that all falcons have the same part no. so does that mean that the only difference between different models is how they are mounted on the car?

A bit clearer - EA series 1 -> high ride height so mounts must be in different places to standard ED's which are naturally lower..

So if I wanted my car to have the same ride height as an ED with Low's then I'd have to go Super Low on my EA? I don't want super low I was just wondering if that is how it works?

Anyway the guy from Tyrepower was going to ring King Springs and ask if they can do Low springs with std height Monroe GT shocks.. He seems to think that there shouldn't be a problem at all doing it..

Dan..

Read Springs

Ok..

If you want SuperLows, you need to have the shorter shocks to suit, as they have a shorter stroke shock due to the smaller ride the spring gives.

Monroe do cater for these front and rear in Premium Gas and Sensa-Tracs

I'd go superlow but the roads where i am are f**cking bad... it would be too low - as in i'd probably lose my diff down a pothole.. also i occassionally work on farms, etc so i need some height...

The guy from tyrepower rang back and he reckons that lows are sweet as with std shocks so thats what i'm getting..

I am in the same boat as you Axeman, shithouse roads so I will be going first stage ( 30mm ) and I have also been told that standard monroes will be fine with these springs

Yeah.. i'll see what it handles like when its done and then i might consider putting stiffer swaybars on.. Also in the wheel department i wouldn't go any bigger than 15's for the same reasons as I said above..

Put nolathane bushes on the swaybar links and you will feel a huge difference! It's like going from a 28 to a 31mm sway bar!
