hey guys,

Used search function but couldn't find what i wanted.

Got a VT-S pack so it has the kit and the FE2 suspension and shocks?
Will the S-packs shocks be good enough to fit SSSL (king ultra lows) in the rear?
Also curious with the kit how high off the ground it is going to be?

thanks alot guys, getting them off a mate from the forums soon hopefully.



here is a picture of his VZ which has stock suspension at the front and the SSSL's im buying off him.




I think they will look better on the shape of a vt than a vz being dropped at the rear (i hope lol)

UPDATED:

Got springs installed by Pedders on weekend for $50. Guy said i 'need' new shocks.


in the shop


in the shop rear


in the shop, clearance? lol



outside, car dirty due to rain and muddy highway...


outside on grass rear tyre. shoes to compare


on my grass, shoes for comparison.


sorry, couldn't fit the invisible caravan in the shot haha

Um No and No.

Standard shocks will not be fine for SSSL's you will need shortened shocks....and I'm sorry are you leaving FE2 in the front and putting SSSL in the rear???

vt s pack
should be fine. may be a hard ride but for the time it should hold up.

if hiting big and hard bumps in the road, ur springs could even fall out by not having the shorten shocks.
saying that, i mean geting air and ****

didnt think the s-pack had standard shocks, thought it had better ones for FE2. Any yeah leaving FE2 on the front. Don't have much money at all and mate was sellign these to me cheap. I will probs have them on for a week, cry, then get them off adn sell them to some other poor bastard. lol

shouldnt be too bad for a few weeks though? mate was running them on stock shocks for a few weeks.

dude just keep your eyes out on ebay / save up and get SL all round. FE2 front, ssl rear is a bad combo....

short shocks are a must with ultra lows. ultra lows look good on a vt, but sadly unless you want to replace your rear tyres every 10000 km's(even with camber kit), i'd go for super lows instead

SSL's are ultras. Not SSSL's.

L = Low
SL = Super Low
SSL = Ultra Low
SSSL = Super Dooper Low

FE2 Does have different shocks, different springs and I think slightly bigger swaybars? Correct me if I'm wrong.

If you want these in your VT, you will need new shocks. Otherwise the rebound of the shock will pop the spring out.

I'm all for personal style, but to be honest, having SSSL in the rear with FE2 up front like that VZ will look like arse on a bad day....Sorry but it is going to look stupid, not to mention have a terrible ride...
