Lowered springs - What to get?

I have used superlows in the past but I wasn't happy as it didnt quite sit as low as I was expecting. What other springs have people used that they are happy with? I know Pedders have a Superlows spring but I am not sure if its any lower than King. I'll go speak to them sometime.

Re: Lowered springs - What to get?

Your shocks will need to be of the shorter type too..Otherwise they'll bottom out..

Re: Lowered springs - What to get?

Sorry I meant to say Ive used KING superlows and they werent as low as I wnated.

EBXR8240, DOn't worry mate I'm well aware of that. Being an XR I didn't need to change the shocks but If i Get this EL XR8 I am looking at I will put new springs and shocks in reguardless.

EFFalcon: If I sell my car I'll sell it with what it's got but if you want superlows bring the old springs back to me and we can work something out. :-)
