An intention to never use the vehicle for it's designed purpose - i.e. putting anything heavier than a dog in the back.

As said before, the Bull Ant works for a living and I really hate having to swerve around every dip and bump in Brisbanes incredible roads.

I am really extremely happy with the Kings Lows and matching KYB shocks and struts that "Hornisport Craig" put on each corner of our ute (along with the complete re-bushing)

It will take any corner with level aplomb and enough slide to keep me smiling.
No body roll and it still has that "New Car Ride" feel - as well as being able to fill the back with as much load as we need without slamming the bump stops on every bit of gravel.

i think he's trying to say that he disapproves of ultra lows on a ute...

you will need shorter shocks, adj panhard rod, and shorter bumpstops. pedders makes short rubber bumpstops for about $25 each?

i got pedders, rough as guts. i'm used to it but whenever someone rides shotgun someone mentions how rough it is. you gotta sacrifice something to gain something, my case practicality over vanity. lol
