Well after the recent SA E-Series cruise, i've decided i want my car lower. My question is this: I have Low king springs and monroe GT Gas shocks. If i were to put in super lows, would i need shorter stroke shocks, or would the shocks i bought with the lows be suitable? Also, would a camber kit be necessary? i have no probs with alignment now and tyre wear is perfectly even, however would lowering the car further change this?
By the way...crappydores generally have this problem (of springs popping out) even with low king springs....as 6_inA_row said though, if you dont have the cash, then standard shocks are the easy way out....
Also, If I can count correctly, this should be my 600th post....now I can stop writing useless bits of errata for a while.....
i have super-lows in my Ef, and i can tell you that u will need a camber kit, otherwise your front tyres will wear really badly on the insides. With the springs, the Monroe GT's will be sufficient, although if you have the money i'd go for some adjustable Koni's or the like.
meh - i went to superlows and no camber kit - 2 degrees neg camber on the front wheels and i have perfect tyre wear - you just have to set your pressures right....
RedEF6 get the springs, bash them in, then see how it goes - they will not fall out, trust me, the only reason you might change the shocks is if you think the ride is too hard/soft, but i reckon you will be fine.

When i changed my suspension in the XR8 from tickford to superlow king springs, i used my original shockers. You can get away with it no worries although the ride is a little bouncy and rough. I have just replaced my shockers all round with Monroe GT Gas and its an amazing differance.
Go the Monroes if your on a budget or go the koni's if your serious about the thing
