Ok guys, i kno there has been alot of talk and questions in threads about supa lows lately... so ill try not to go on, but anyway.

I ordered the lot... front and rear springs and short shaft shockers for the front... what can i say? it looks grouse...

previously the height to the top of my guard was 660mm (tickford springs) and straight after it was 650mm, after a few short drives it is now aroud 645 but should drop to about 640 when finally settled in (so roughly an inch lower). at the rear it was 680 and it is now 655mm to the arch,(a bit over and inch) so i am happy with the results (any non tickford cars will drop about 2 inches due to higher ride height).

initial ride impressions is it is a fair bit firmer, and corners better... because it stays flatter thorugh the turns which is good. im very happy with results and recommend it to anyone!! i used King Spring BTW. i will post pics up soon, i hope this helps to anyone thinking of doing something similar!! cheers

what shockers did you fit with the springs?
Hope they are good ones because superlows kill shockers very very quickly unless they are good!

thanks hoon69, your a bastard too.

well at least i had 6 days to experience superlows on my car. and i still dream about having it superlow again. i reckon it should b law that all driveways should be made that exetremely lowered cars should be able to get in and out, without goin on rediculous angles.

the main priority for my house when i buy one, is that it must have a good driveway entry for my car, then i will be back to superlow :D

when Rollin comes to my house and goes down my driveway, he has to start on our neighbours driveway, and then go onto mine. I dont think the neighbours mind, cuz its only now and then, but they would crack up if it was all the time!!!

i scrape heaps bad on driveways especially on my friends driveway, it caught my front muffler and ripped it right off, driving home with out any exhaust was fun though, been stuck heaps of times, but it still doesnt look low enough for me, i want to drop the back another half an inch to an inch, dont know yet, have to see with bigger wheels!! never had to drive along foot paths yet that sounds like fun!
