I dropped mine "low" which was about 1.5 inches front and 2 inches rear. Car looked a lot lower when I had standard wheels on it. When I put 17's on it , it all of a sudden looked high again....
But yeah Make sure you can get in and out of your driveway etc.
Mine scrapes!!

I'm gunna go for lows rather than the superlows as well. I remember bass's car had trouble gettin outa maccers that one time and was scrapin the shit outa the bottom, so yeah I don't wan't that happenin, and also your less likely to get hassled by cops. IMO it's still a huge improvement even with just the lows in there.

Ive put lovells superlows in both my EF and my old EA which my parents now drive. Never had any problems with clearance of speedhumps or driveways.

Dunno if Kings superlows are lower than lovells tho?

Anyone got a photo of a EA with Low Springs. Not a photosop job?

lownloud what springs did you use, you said it lowered the rear more? anymore details on this? 2 inch sounds a lot for Lows thats all.

What else did you all change...Shocks? camber kit thing?

thanks
