Super lows & GT Gas, installed

Me and my brother installed kings superlows and monroe GT Gas with reflex technology all round in my 1989 EA II S Pack sedan. It took us about 1.20hrs to do the rear and about 4 hours to do the front.

I just wanted to tell ya all that this combination is very good. The car sits very well. There is nearly no body role and breaking is 100% better. I can now take corners with ease.

My first thought was "Im gona to be pulled up by cops now". We installed them on Sunday, that night I drove through Perth and at a set of lights a cop pulled up next to me had a look and said nothing.

My old shocks and struts were dead, this would be the best updrade I have ever done to my EA.

I was thinking of selling it, but not now........
I now have heaps more mods planned.


Go the EA's

I went with the same combo, king superlows and sensatraks on my 95 Ef Fairmont, the result has been excellent. The car rides and handles a heap better. It also looks a lot better than the standard ass in the air Fairmont stance.

I wimped out and got my mechanic to do it, as I have a tendency to stuff things up. My knowledge and ability runs out after filter and oil changes.

it cost me $180 for the springs (kings superlows) and $230 for the 2 front struts and the 2 rear shocks(all are monreo GT Gas with reflex technology) also got a bush kit for free. Everything was at mates rates.

Installation cost nothing as i did it myself. It is not that hard....

Where you guys get ur gear from?

Round here, the best I've been quoted is $230 for set of kings 'on special'. And $370 for a set of shocks. NOT Fitted.

As a package i was qouted 800 for springs and shock installed. And 850 for lot with camber kit (different places) :(

And do tou need a spring compressor thingo for instalation?

Cheers,
Jase
