    Independent suspension - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia will help you out relating to IRS

    FE2 is Holden's Optional sports suspension, or lowered suspension however on upper models (ie SS, Clubsport, Calais etc) FE2 was standard I believe. It's Kings equivilent to "Low". If you're spending coin to lower your car and contemplating FE2, can I recommend the next size down?

    IRS is about maintaining as much useable tyre surface contact with the road under all conditions during suspension travel. Some do it better then others.

    Grab a 2 point camber kit along with some better sways and that should complement your new suspension well. Firmer rate springs are the go in commies due to the weight of them

    PROS: Handles better in corners,much more road grip faster you go the harder it bites into the road

    CONS: LOL..... depending how HARD you drive your car will depend how many tyres you go through. is notorious for eating inside edges out from squatting
