i'm buying some lowered springs off a friend as soon as he gets them out of his car, they're pretty low and i have 17's so i'll want my guards rolled.
How much would it roughly cost to get my VK's guards rolled?
Any info is cool
Thanks :thumbsup:

Hey mate,

Nice ride, had one just like it when I was on my P's.

I wouldn't worry too much about the tyers rubbing on the guards if your going as low as you say you are.

My current Vk sits about 1cm over the tyre (im running 225's all round) at the front and about the same on the back. I drive it every day and dont have too many problems. you just have to be carefull when going over speed humps and drive real slow when the wheels are at full lock. Other than that she's fine.

sorry I cant help with the guard rolling.

I'd try it first, if it rubs put on your old tyres.

If the vk is anything like the vl in the guards apparently rolling won't help much, but will help a little bit. 50 dollars a corner should get it done for you.

I'm going to lower my V8 Calais.Rather than go the whole hog & op 4 the super lows, I'm just gunna go with lows.Superlows are nice but have a magnetic attraction to the filth.I've seen many a nice Commy advertised in the trading post complete with a yellow canary on it 4 ride height.:cry:

Correct me if I'm wrong here your an Adelaide lad, but a ride height defect means a visit to Regency Park, that black hole where defected cars go & are neva seen agen.Once an appointment is made down there with the "Detectives" you'll wind up with a few more defects & they'll give you a bill for the privilge.I'm not tempting fate & my car's been rebuilt underneath, front to rear.

I'm in NSW and dont know of any guard rollers in other states but there are several professionals in Sydney that can do it without damaging paint.

Google it
