vs commodore
i Fitted super low king springs and lowered shocks. The car still has the factory stance(higher at the rear). Upon talking to a guy at pedderes he says they can tune the suspension so the car sits evenly. How do they do this?!? i cant find anything on how to do it, even in the manual.

if they do that... they would be anealling the springs (permanent softening) which alters the heat treatment of the metal.

so i would hope thats not what they do...

anyone who puts a blade or heat to springs is a fool,
you are asking for trouble,the spring cannot do its job properly now

They plug a computer into the spring continuum transponder unit and tune to desired height.

All good.

Even superlows all round will leave the the rear slightly higher then the front, normally if you want the rear even or a littler lower then the front, you go superlow front and ultras rear.

How long have they been in the car? brand new springs can take a week or two to settle to the right height

They will bake the springs, reset them and then retemper them.

Done properly it is not dangerous at all and is the standard practice for resetting all types of springs.
