    Hey guys need to lower my ve ss and there's an add on eBay for monroe gt shocks struts with king springs for about $680.

    Now I got three options

    1st option: super low all around

    2nd option: super low front, ultra low rear

    3rd option: ultra low all around


    Can you guys help me with the best option for a nice riding height for the ss please as I got no clue about lowering a car?

    Thanks
    Nik

    There's a 15mm difference between the superlow & ultralow springs, i have the superlows on my ssv which lowered it 50mm(f) & 60mm(r) from standard fe2 spec. When i first had the superlows in mine i thought that it wasnt low enough but i dont regret it now as there's not alot of clearance between the front bar & most concrete parking pillars & curbs, also ive got a full twin 3inch exhaust & i find i can clear most speedhumps if i take it easy with just me in the car but if i have a full car load then i have f@# all chance(you could make it over if your exhaust is a twin 2.5inch).

    VE SS Have 19's as standard yea?

    If so I would say SL's all round.

    SL front and UL rears is just screeming out TOOOL

    And UL all round will give you a better chance of a pretty yellow sticker.

    if you go any lower than ssl you will scrape on EVERYTHING on the front, but on the rear go as low as you can

    if you go super lows i wouldnt put short shocks cause you dont really need them. if you only want a little lower go super lows.. want it slammed go ultra low and short shocks.

    I sent a email to king springs


    I have a Holden VE SS MY9.5. I will be fitting a set of 20" wheel with 243/35/20 tyres. What springs do I need so the top of the tyre is level or close to the gaurd?


    I was told to use SSSL's this confused me a little until I relized these were Ultra Lows. I would like to know how correct this is. Only one way, try and learn.

    Whats the number in the front of the part number?

    i'd go ultra lows if you want it to the top of the tyre and get shortened shocks. cause it will pretty much be sitting on the bumpstop with no travel

    Ve's are different,

    SL = Fe2 spec
    SSL's = superlows
    SSSL's = Ultralows
