Superlows or Ultralows for EB sedan???

Hi guys Im looking at getting my EB lowered as soon it is back in my possession after the workshop is done with it.
Im having a bit of trouble choosing between King Spring Superlows or Ultralows.

The SL's drop the car between 40 and 50mm while the Ultralows drop the car 60mm+ according to an email from the King Spring company.
I dont have to deal with any bad driveways so scraping wont be a problem I dont think.

Im more worried about getting pulled up by the cops and having them look under the bonnet.
The ultralows will look unreal I think but is it worth the risk of getting pulled over? Will they even notice?

What do you guys think?

Cheers
Dan

Re: Superlows or Ultralows for EB sedan???

ultralows are only show car, not legal on the road, and no shocks are designed for them, you have to use low shocks and they wear out quickly, well thats what I have heard.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Superlows, with the shorter stroke shocks to match.

Re: Superlows or Ultralows for EB sedan???

I haven't had a problem with my superlows in the past six months or so that I've had them: regarding police and scraping. Just as long as you have 100mm clearance from the bottom you should be fine...

I'd go superlows if you were concerned, but I guess you could try the ultra lows - I'm sure if you didn't like them or had trouble with it being too low, someone would buy them off you in a hurry.

ultra lows ride like shit, too low to be practical and as Dellboy said no-one makes a shock to suit..

Super lows all day if you intend on driving the car, ultra if you want to stand around and look at it

Really I wouldnt think 2cms would make that much difference to ride quality.
At this stage it looks like superlows will be the go unless someone who has ultralows can comment.

Thanks guys

Superlows.
The rear end ride comfort with Superlows is marginal already. Fill the boot with groceries, and it's a bumpy ride home! Ultralows would be a bitch to live with.

Re: Superlows or Ultralows for EB sedan???

on the kings catalouge it even says superlows are for show cars... as if!!!

I would go superlows, you would find that you will wear out suspension components quicker, and the ride will be pretty rough...
