thanks for the reply, you can get set of king springs on ebay for around 230. 80 each seems a bit steep. cheers

I've got king springs with shocks, about $800 it cost me. More lower you go, more you pay.

i think you will find that is wrong, unless you are including other associated costs such has panhard rod etc. which IMO should be used with any lowering.

Just checked invoice, all up a grand (sorry for the wrong figure), but I also got rims and tyres, so I had a discount on lowering (and accessories):yeah:
