my mate has just put superlows (springs and shocks) in his vl with 17"rims which are sweet but his car is to low like he's got the guards rolled and the tyre still scrape . would it be different on the vn ? if i put his superlows in my car , i was told legal limit it 2.5 inches and anything else would be pushing it but hell **** legal if it will work ?
Superlows really arent that low man. They are just legal yeah. Keep in mind Superlow is not just one size spring...there are several sizes that fall under the Superlow category as well.
Eye height legal measurements for a VN are as follows here in Adelaide:
330mm for the front
310mm for the rear.
Thats from the centre of the wheel to the guard...And suprisingly even Ultralows will be legal in the front...Just.....But rear is a different story because of the way the guard squares off
Apporox...How many inches from stock hight do superlows drop it? thanx
Australia. Love it or leave it
yea i know the legal limit but this guys vl is way to low i dunno ? like i said he's got 17" and they scrape but will there be a difference with the vn considering its a bigger car and i reakon its higher up then the vl's ???? like measuring mine atm i can drop 2.5 inches but i dunno if the superlows will do it or not ?
The VL and VN and are pretty much the exact same car underneath the different shaped body panels, all the suspension is the same. VB-VP=same car
They will maybe just drop your car 2.5 inches. I think the drop for the lowest superlows is 65mm...perhaps not quite?Originally Posted by mr_l_commodore
Are you sure they are superlows? Not ultralows or superlows that have been chopped? What colour are the springs?
this guys a nut like he researches everything before he does it and yea there superlows he did em hisself brought it all brand new , a guy offered to do mine what ever hight i wanted for 100 and i tld him that its dodge cut and i wouldnt do it and he said 150 properly and my mate just paid bout 700 for his so i dun see how thats proper but cut the story short this vl owner ( i hate vl's) has lowered his car and now its to low so he's going to change them again i want mine lowered anyway should i take the risk for half the price or should i pay some ****er 900 to do springs and shocks ? thats how much pedders quoted anyways im just like hmm 2.5 inch for 900 ? **** that ? whats with that shit ? neways guys a lil advice wouldnt hert !!!!!! i think i'd be ok with his superlows cause my car was like way higher then his before he did it so i dunno ?
I just got some super lows for the back and some shortend shocks. it costed about $300 for the shocks and springs. I got quoted some stupid price just for the backs so i just went into repco got the parts and did it myself for half the price. Back is easy but i dont no how to go about the front. i think i might have to pay someone to do it.

900 is way too expensive. $500 is a better mark for a set of king springs, shocks and also labour.
But if you take the springs off him you can save yourself some money and just have them put in when you get the shocks done as well. But make sure they are yellow springs (king springs) just in case he is b/s
see its not the fact of putting them in i can do anything lol and if i cant the misses can pmpl dun ask . and well im just worried if i buy them off him for half the price again with a weeks worth of usage , that my car will be to low and i'll get the good old canary sticker . ? like i said tho his car looked pretty low ( in memory) compared to mine so i dunno ? i reakon it'll drop me between 3-4inches maybe ? what if i try it and if its to low can i put different fronts in ?
I wouldnt be paying any more than $50 labour to have the rear done (shocks + springs).Originally Posted by coolvncommodore
SA Suspension Centre put 3 different sets of springs in mine to get it to sit right and charged me $30 labour, so 1 set of springs and shocks shouldnt cost too much more?
Front is more expensive though cause it takes longer, but it aint too much difference because they have all the right tools for the job
hmm i dunno what colour they are ? i can find out the details and msg u guys see ur advice cause i'll be honest man i know **** all bout products but i know how to use em and how to put em in i just dun want to get ripped off and the beast is looking so shit this high mind u the 14" rims dun help lol getting 18" soon hopefully my mate just got 20" havent seen em on yet tho and i thought 18's were bad lol
I'll say it again. The LOWEST springs in the Superlow range wil drop your 65mm, if that maybe. Secondly they have already been used so they shouldnt drop any more than they already have.Originally Posted by mr_l_commodore
The lowest Ultralows would not even drop your car 4 inches.
hmm ok then i should be fine with that then yea ? well 65mm is 2 and half inches yea ? round that so i should be fine with what he's got i'll ask him anyways . how much is ur car lowered ? and how do i get pictures up on here i wana post a thread on my interior gonna look mad on friday

Also 65mm is around 2.5 inches.. And should be legal. I have King Springs progressive/variable rate superlows in the rear sitting at 315mm eye height and Lovells Extra Superlows (equivalent to ultralows) in the front which sit at 334mm lol just legal.
I used to have the Lovells Extra Superlows in the rear too, but got defected for being 3 inches too low (had shit in the boot for schoolies as well, i was in victor at the time). They were considerably lower than the King Springs Ultralows though.
fair enough okies well what price am i looking around for getting new springs and shocks without labour cause i'll do it myself ? so i wont pay him much if i can get em same price .
Around $200 for springs....Not completely sure on shocks. Are you sure you can do the front springs and shocks? Rear is easy, but front is harder unless you have the right equipment
m8 im the king of kings ^_^ to much whrestling , neways to the point yea no sweat i'll do it at my mates house he's got like everything u'd ever need for a car he's whacko and he's gonna spray the car for me cause its way to expensive to get it done anywhere else but to the point once its sprayed and the kits on etc im selling the ****er im sick of the vn time to get some power i reakon clubby or ss
cheers for the talk and advice
if they are superlows and king springs it wont be low enough trust me
hehe anytime manOriginally Posted by mr_l_commodore
i asked him and there king springs super lows and monro shocks i think he said ? and adustable pandard rod or something like that ? but i just look at some other guys thread and his price for all that was pretty cheap to do myself and i've read up on how to do it doesnt sound to hard with the right tools
Fair enough...if you can do it yourself then go for it man.Originally Posted by mr_l_commodore
The adjustable panhard rod is optional...you dont have to have one if you dont want it or dont have the money for it.
to be LEGAL in Victoria the car must be 100mm from the LOWEST point of your car, generally this is the exhaust but it also could be the front spoiler etc
thats australia wide ^^^
