Hi guys,

I'm interested in lowering my VE slightly, I would really just be happy with the FE2 ride height. I received a quote from one suspension and springs specialist who were quoting $1200 to install their own springs... the price seems a little steep, considering its only the springs I want done.

If anyone knows of anywhere I should try in Adelaide, that would be appreciated!

Thanks!

if youare happy with FE2 (imo not low enough but anyway), buy FE2 for next to nothing on ebay or something... then get a mob to install for you.
sooo many people with FE2 who want lower, but if that floats your boat take advantage of them getting rid of it.

Yeah but you need to get a full wheel alignment done too. Not just get a mechanic to swap springs over...

you dont need a wheel alignment straight off the bat.. if the springs are brand new they need time to sag. sagging after an alignment is a waste of money
