hey guys,
ive tried searchin this but havent been successful.

going to lower the big girl soon, and i want it fairly low. i know it may be stupid and pointless for speed humps and that but ill love lookin at it sittin so close to the ground

any way. i know im gettin ultra lows on the back, pretty sure super lows would be a better option on the front to reduce scrubbing when turning. opinions? ill only be running 17's

im also getting lowered shocks and struts and a 4 point super pro camber kit, and will have it all aligned once its installed.

ok, i dont want keyboard warriors to tell me how stupid this and what ever else, it probably will be but i stil want it. can any one tell me if they have had a vt on ultras and what it was like driving

cheers

Hey man, My mate has the same set up running on his VT (on 19" XHP JET blacks)
His scrubbed like a bastard but then got his guards rolled but you should be fine with
17" wheels tho. As for the ride, its very very hard compared to standard, but not
unbearable, with 17's it will be softer tho. It will defs look sick, good luck.

i've got a VT Calais which i had ultra lows all round. rode like a go cart. they only lasted 6 months before i replaced them with super lows. the ride is still firm but bearable, & my rear tyres last about 15,000 kms longer(and that's with a camber kit)

go to my 'my ride' thread. Had SSSL on the back for a month. Hated it, cant go anywhere and have to park outside of shopping centres cos speedbumps and entrances are to angled.

thanks for all the info. stil gonna do it even though ive herd mixed comments. maybe even though i have 17's, ill roll the guards any way and this will reduce tyre scrub even more. probably lookin at gettin bigger rims later but happy with the SS's on it at the moment. i want to change other stuff first.

thanks again
