Hey guys,
My front and rear shocks are at that time to need replacing and I want to lower my car low enough to look good not scrap as my driveway is pretty steep.
How low will the fe2 sit from wheel arch to ground?
Any picture would be great to

Fe2 should be what you already have if your car is an SV6.

Holden thought the colour of my car was Impulse, they are useless. Check the build plate under the bonnet.

Fe2 sits a bit high in my opinion. Lows in front and sl's in the rear would look ok and still be fairly practical. And legal as long as you don't get an exhaust that hangs down low.

Would lows in front and sl's in rear look good with 18's? And for shocks and struts what would be a good brand kyb, monroes, pedders?

You'll pay allot more for peddlers. There's an eBay store called archem suspension who sell king springs with Monroe shocks for about $600. Sl will look ok with 18's. Should drop the rear about 30mm lower than the picture (fe2). Sl will keep it legal too. SSL on 18's might just be under.

Just took my measurements from my lowest point of my car on my driveway if I lower 30mm she will scrape so only solution just keep springs and only change shocks and struts.
Also turns out my build plate states I have fe2 suspension :)
