Just wondering what spring and shock combinations people are using. I want to lower my AU, but want it sitting so the wheels basically just meet the guards. Virtually no gap between wheel and guard. what springs and shocks would i need for this?
ive just had king spring superlows and koni 82 series shocks put on all round and i definately recommend them, they will give you what your looking for (just check with insurance, some dont accept superlows apparently)
Springs are only around $119 per pair for both AU and XFs. The difference in price is the konis. They are around $250 to $300 odd per strut for the front, and about the same for a rear pair, plus a couple hundred in labour. $1300 fitted is actually a very good price.
AU1 XR8 Auto147.9 rwkw (approx 215 fwkw)
AU2 Wagon HAD Auto
17s, Pacemakers, 3" Intake & Pod filter (The Family Hack)
usually recommended especially when going lower than just lows
but my suspension guy said it varies with every car (as in some cars will have used more of its adjustment already just with the standard setup than others)
he got mine JUST right without the camber kit, but hes gonna check it again soon and may need to throw it in just to be on the safe side
