Hey, i'm looking to buy super lows all round for my vs v6 live axel, anyway i was looking in the online catalogue and i found this:


Anyway, notice how the VR ultralow fronts are KHFL-47SSL+, and the VS SUPERlow fronts are KHFL-47SSL+, i thought they would use the same springs, does this have anything to do with the Buick engine weighting less in the VR and the ECOTEC weighting more in the VS?
Either way i want super lows all round (and going for the KHFL-47SSL+ sounds like what kingsprings would reccomend to me) but should i look for KHFL-47SL+ or KHFL-47SSL+ for the front, the back is easy KHPR-20HD for not only the VS and VR but for heaps of others.

From memory the spring seats(on the shocks) are a different height,therefore need a different part number between the two
SSL on the VR will give you next to no shock travel

ok well i want superlows and for it, suppose i should go with what the ad says, which by the way is from the kingsprings website so i doubt its full of bull i might contact them just to be certian because im sure the two springs dont do the exact same thing otherwise they would just make them the same name

well i wanted superlows but after seeing yours in pic i think ultralows would be better, does your ass end seem to stick up a bit or do you prefer the look of a lowered end and a higher front, thats why your going for ultras in the back?

hey just had another look at your thread on yor vr and your height looks about what i want, i think in that pic you posted it was hard to tell because of your wheel turned plus you took the pic from low which made it seem higher, i like your height, if you get ultras let me know if youd sell those supers

yeah most of the time when i look at it, it looks like ass end is higher.
i hate the look of the low ass, high front thats the reason ive put off the ultras. but ive seen quite afew cars with supers at the front and ultras in the back and it looks even.
