VR V6 Live axle King springs Superlow all round, monroe GT Sport shortened shocks, thinner rubber seats top and bottom

I get absolutely no scraping/rubbing, and i can take most speed bumps with a little bit of speed

heres mine with 17s and one with 20s. kings superlows in the front and ultra low in the back. with the 17's it sat at 70mm clearance and 105mm with the 20's. i reckon its a good height.

Depends also on what size wheels you will be using. It's a good idea to go one step lower at the back, for example, superlow in the front, and ultra low on the back, if you want a level ride height, if you fit the same height springs all round, you'll find that the arse end will sit up a little higher.. If your using stock wheels, and still wanting to keep it leagal, then i wouldn't go any lower than superlow in the rear, and standard low in the front. Any lower than that, and you'll be looking for attention. If you plan on fitting larger rims, 17's or larger, then you can get away with Ultra's in the back, and super's in the front, just like the pictures above by Krizko, notice the pictures by Sweetfu, his back end sit's up just a tad higher with the same springs all round...
