Ive been reading the forums and the listed threads are confusing with all the banter. I have a Calais V which already has the FE2 springs. Im thinking of lowering it with King Springs SL = Super Low (Equivalent lowering to FE2) SSL = Super Super Low SSSL = Ultra Low So im thinking of going to SSL, I want to get the guard to be level with the tyre (if possible) Currently my VE with 18" and FE2 has around 50-60mm clearance between tyre and guard. I know im not going to close that gap completely. So Ive 2 questions, (1)with SSL springs, how much lower will it go? (2)Should the shocks be changed or can I keep the current style shock? I know I dont need to change shocks, but as the car has done over 100 000 im looking at changing them anyway so figured I may as well put the correct shocks in. I want to avoid making the ride too bumpy though, so if the current model shocks will provide less bumps, then I'll stick with them.
