Yeah, I was thinking the same thing when I did mine. Real question is how low do you want to go? I have used King Spring Super Super Lows all round and Ultima Shocks all round. This has lowered it so the guard is just off being level with the top of the tyre.
Pedders has kits that go lower if that's what you want, and the pedders kits are a more cumfy ride. But they're more expensive as well.
All up for me it cost around $750 fitted.
Hope this helps...

ultralows + std shockers? I call BS on your ride being smoothe! It would be rock hard and you'd just about go through the roof when rebounding off potholes!

If you go any lower than lows, I strongly recommend you get shockers to suit, to improve the ride height & so that you don't have f**ked shocks 3 months down the track (like I did :p)

Here's a couple of threads from another forum on guard rolling (if required) and lowering FAQs.
