I'm in the same boat mate. I just brought a manual EF futura and am doing all the usual stuff. Already done the redback cat back exhaust which cost me $300. Next on the list is the springs and shocks. I'm going for the Monroe GT's too but haven't decided on whether to go low or superlow with the king springs. I don't wanna be scraping everywhere if I get superlows but I don't wanna find that I'm still sitting up too high on the lows. Ahhh, what to do. Can someone throw up a pic or 2 of their cars if they have either set up ?
BTW, get a price from lee's performance parts: http://www.performanceparts.com.au/
I send him an email the other day - I can't remember the price of the shocks but the springs were $199 for the set of 4 and he also recommended the adjustable camber kit for $100 odd.
I'm a bit further south than you, in the Cronulla area but let me know if you get a good deal on someone fitting it. I'm looking at getting the local mobile mechanic out. He quoted $40 a corner a few months back.
