Which parts to lower my car??

Well it is official, I am back to driving an E series and the XF is leaving my hands.
I put my 17's on the EB today and the car sits way, way too high.

I want my tires to be right in my guards and I need to know what parts I need to buy and part numbers would be good too.
I have access to trade price at repco so I need to know exactly what I need.

Which springs are everyones favourite? It seems the general consensus is King springs superlows. Is there any other kind of spring that I can get from repco that would be lower? I have seen some KS superlow pics and it doesnt seem that low. (My driveway is very flat.)

Which shocks do yo people recommend for lowered springs? Koni's may be a bit much but what about your slightly above average lowered shock? Which one is good?

Finally which camber kit do I need? Are there different types?

Tell me what you are happy/not happy with so I know what to buy.

I also noticed in performance ford magazine an EB had coil overs fitted for $1500 from centreline suspension. Are coil overs better?

Thanks a lot guys
Dan

Dan if your going to go that low, be prepared for gaurd rolling aswell.
Oh and the cops like cars that low, keeps them in business.

Height adjustable coil overs would be good if you want to go that low.

I'd rather not attract too much attention but after driving the V8 for 6 months with no hassles Im starting to wonder if the police around here pay any attention.

Your car sits nicely, what springs and shocks are you running? Are you happy with them?
