    Well i have a live axle vs with the normal width spring insulators. I found that superlows all around was pretty average, the ass wasn't dropped to the height i'd like it what so ever! Took it back, they replaced with ultra lows in the rear, with a full tank of petrol, looks pretty good. It will still sit level no matter if the tank is full or empty. As for the scraping, i haven't had any issues with it for the mere fact i have 50' 17's on it...The normal height of the tyre's are 45' 17's...So they are a bigger tyre on the rims i have. With that smaller normal tyre, it is possible that you may scrape quite a fair bit over bumps.

    Cheers, Boojakz.

    i also just put in superlows allround.i should have put in ultralow rear but i was unsure how low it would be,id say i could put in ultras in the rear no problems. i also found aami to be good with insurance, as nrma will no longer cover me using superlows

    Narrr shortened shocks are already in! I'm talking about shortened spring insulators...Little piece of rubber, sits at top of spring in the mount....you can apparently get shorter ones that pedders make...and it'll really sink the wheel into the guard then.

    lol its called factory, see through glass tint. Lol nar mate, there's no tint at all on it. I think it's just the reflection and stuff, makes it look as if it is tinted, but it aint. I'm after a set of extractors and injectors for it :( can't find a second hand set of extractors anywhere....or anyone that will sell a set of brand newies that cheap though :(. I really don't wanna pay anymore than $350, but that's practically impossible to find!

    She looks good, mines sitting about that height, it was even lower when I had lower profile 15"s on mine, but I got a defect so I got thicker tires to just scrape in legal.

    May I ask what those rims are off, and how much you paid?
