I know this has been covered here and there but what would be the ball park price to lower a VYII to SL (fronts) and SSL (rears) with kingsprings? I am under the assumption that shorter shocks and a 4 point camber kit will be needed as well as fitting. How often will I have to get a camber kit? What are the recurring costs involved?

Thanks in advance

$300 to have the springs installed. dont NEED the shorter shocks. Camber kit around $300-$400 installed. Camber kit is simply bushes and they DO wear over time. Maybe in 150,000kms time it could need doing. Seriously just call a few shops and get a proper quote.

Ok thanks mate. I thought with SSL's you needed the shortened shocks. I might look into doing it a bit further down the track. Get the money rolling in a bit first :yeah:

Oh ok. I didn't know they were that cheap.

How low are your springs?
Did you need shorter shocks?
Did you need a camber kit?

If you want it to handle rather then just look good you're best off fitting new shocks (especially if they haven't been replaced before). I think you will need a camber kit if you're coming form FE1. Borderline if you already have FE2.

Thanks for the info guys. I think I might get the camber kit as it's only $100 but can I fit the camber kit myself or do I need someone else to do it?
