Lowering - Brisbane

Hey guys Im seriously considering getting my car lowered in a weeks time, I dont have the time/couldnt be bothered doing it myself so I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good place in the brisbane area, southside preferably. I tried JAX at slacks creek but they wanted $850 fitted, lows and new shocks all 'round.
I am also still tossing up between low and super low, but thats another issue I guess...
Cheers guys

Anthony, how much can u get the gear for?? If u can get it cheap then i know a guy who does stuff pretty cheap. He's a retired mechanic and will do the full install for around $120.

Re: Lowering - Brisbane

BTW, i was gonna put super lows in my wagon.. I even brought them but then i looked at how low it will sit in the guard (2" i was told) and i fort it would make the wagon very impractical and annoy the shit out of me when i scrape coming out of driveways. I opted for kings lows and it looks very decent under the 15" wheels. Supa lows look awesome but they dont give enuf clearance... whats the point?

Re: Lowering - Brisbane

$120 sounds pretty sweet man, I'll get some prices on the hardware and go from there..
Im thinking...if im gonna lower it, I might as well go the whole hog, but then I start thinking about the usual places I drive, for example the crappy driveways in moss street at springwood...i dont think id make it to lunch with superlows...
Cheers for the info Brent, Ill get some prices over the next few days!

Re: Lowering - Brisbane

I think now that i made a good choice with just the lows. What good is a fast car if u gotta go 5km/h over dips in the road?

Re: Lowering - Brisbane

Brent Brent Brent, superlows on the front of a wagon with 2" blocks in the back wont be impractical. My mate has only ever bottomed out at chermside with a car load of people in it.

In my opinion lows dont look like it's lowered unless a stock height car is beside it
