King Ultra Lows

Ive noticed recently that King offer Ultra Lows in their catalogue for E series and AU/BA falcons. I understand that these MUST be illigal, as superlows bring an EA/L 20mm below the legal limit (in SA), but does anyone know how much lower the ultra lows drop an EL over the superlows. Is it another 30mm down as is the drop between Lows and Superlows?

I have a Superlow equiped EA atm, and by no means at all is it undriveable, or does it have a problem with groundclearences anywhere, so this would leave me to believe that ultra lows may still be relativly streetable. Anyone with experence??

Re: King Ultra Lows

I tried emailing them and they sent me a reply straight away but didnt tell me how low they were, They only said that repco stock them and that in some states both the superlows and ultralows are illegal and only for show use.
I sent another email asking them about the height but got no answer. Send them an email and see how you go.
I just bought an EB and it needs to lowered ASAP. It looks strange with 17's and stock ride height.

Re: King Ultra Lows

Lows to super lows is about 30mm.
Whats the lowest legal limit in SA?
Mine is superlow and it is 100mm.

Re: King Ultra Lows

in SA minium height is determined by eyebrow height from hub centerline to guard. In SA it is 365 front and 345rear, superlows are 10-20mm below this.

Re: King Ultra Lows

It's hard to whip em in and out in two hours if your car is written off on the back of a tow truck in the insurance holding yard..

Re: King Ultra Lows

yeh i herd ultralows are or should only be used for show use. im guessin it would be impossible to clear some speed humps with ultra's. i have superlows in my EA and its fine, u just have to take it easy round bumps obviously lol though i have had my fair share of scraping...

but love to see wat a e-series car looks like with ultas's
