Depends how low you want it i guess, SSL's at the rear, SL's at the front looks quite good.
But im thinking of going SSSL's at the rear and SSL's at the front, Waiting on wheels to be fitted and see how it looks with the SSL's, But yeah.
Personal preference mate.

My Mrs's Brother's got a red VY S. Got SSSL(Ultras) in the front and SSL(Supers) in the rear. Got a pretty tough looking rake. I guess its personal preferance mate.

Dropped kings SL front and Rear on the SS from the original FE2's with 19" rims, rides alot firmer and on has caused some issues with the rear shocks which I am about to change out.

But all in all its low enough for me and still goes over speed bumps ( slowly) without so much problems.

Personal pref mate......consider the roads you will be driving on every day.

Lastlegend, How much tyre tuck you get with your wheels and suspension?

Thanks.
The fronts tyres (top) sit just level with the front guards and I don't have any issues with them rubbing and they don't give me any issues, the rears tyres (top) are tucked about 30mm up into the rear guards which I had rolled ( As I was planning 20's) and while the tyres are not an issue the shocks have taken a beating on the roads around Brisbane due to road works and pot holes and have peeled a section off the shocks outter tube up and it is smashing down on the shocks lower bolts and now sounds like I am bottoming out over every bump. I am replacing the rear shocks this weekend.

Apart from the shock problem the Rims design where made for late model Commodores so with the rear camber they sit very nicely up into the guard with no rubbing.

This image was taken when the springs went in and the car has dropped and settled about 20mm since then.
