In bris, you should not have a prob, but if i were you i would get a mod plate from the roads authorities, or you might get into a bit of trouble.

Re: Superlow road worthy?

as long as there is 100mm between the ground and the lowest point on the body of the vehicle you will have no dramas.

all that 2/3 of bump travel must be retained crap does not need to be taken into account, falcon suspension travel is massive.

Re: Superlow road worthy?

In the XF when I put superlows in, with the standard bump-stops, there was about a thumb width of travel before hitting them, so I cut them in half.
Made the ride over medium bumps much better, but the big ones are REALLY big now....lol

Do I really have to write something funny in here?

Re: Superlow road worthy?

Chop ya bumps tops in half and space your shock top about 15mm-20mm, u'll get a bit more travel out of ur front end.
