    Hey there,
    Ive got a 1990 VN exec and as most of you probably know, they sit wayyy to high at the rear end. I don't know much when it comes to suspension ect so i figured i might aswell as on here.

    Just wanted to know:
    What are the different methods i can use to lower the back or front + back?

    What is the approx cost to get this done?

    :D
    THANKS in advance! Can't wait to hear back from anyone that knows.

    your looking at about $250 for front and rear springs and you can choose whatever height you want, if you want it low but not stupid low id go king springs lows up front with super lows in the back to make it sit level...

    you dont HAVE to but you should really get shortened shocks too but they can come at a later date... hope this helps

    thats just for parts if you and some mates can change them go for it but if not ask around different suspetion places for a price to change them... will take them a couple hours max

    In ACT it would cost about $700 to rock up and drive away low. But if u got handy mates then it should only cost u the price of the springs and a case of piss.... If u dont know anyone then I'd call around and try 2 get a set of 2nd hand springs (wreckers,classies,etc) then ring around and get quotes 4 puttin them in.
