Suspension Help

Hey im new to the forums and it looks like a good way to get info.

Re: Suspension Help

Lows are I think the best way to go, superlow looks better but you will have major issues with speed humps etc.
Also, with lows you can reuse your old shocks - great if you're short on cash! A set of King springs lows will set you back around $260 (at least in Perth) if you fit them yourself.

If you are considering lowering your e-series dont forget the tailshaft, the tailshafts are known to rub on the tunnel at the back, Automotive Performance Solutions in melbourne offer a two piece tailshaft upgrade which cures this problem.

i got king super lows with 235/45x17 tyres (smaller dia than stockies)
and i have never hit speed hump unless i go too fast over them
don't need to roll the guards and i am using std shocks
shocks don't last as long tho..
i got mine 12 months ago and the front shocks have lost all their damper
unless you need it that low just get the lows
i got mine for 105 a pair from repco at trade price
just tell them u have a trade card and lost it.... they should just discount them anyway
