    Default VE SS on King springs?

    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).

    I was thinking about this aswell. It would be good to see how it goes.

    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
