    king springs. everyone knows king springs are perfect for holden's.
    just go down to autobarn and they'll supply and install it, at a cost of course.

    About $350 for superlow kingsprings. And and extra $400 for Monroe sport gt lowered shocks if you want a proper ride. But those shocks are a bit on the soft side.

    QUESTION..
    My car now idles really rough, it feels like its missing or something? Also when I'm going up a hill or slowly accelerating it jumps and splutters and carries on like it's missing.. It's okay if you hold it flat and get the revs up high, but I look like an idiot if I have to keep driving like that lol. Can anyone give me insight as to whether they've heard of this before or what it may be? Cheers

    Easy. If it misses at idle that's the easiest time for some diagnosis. What to do: while the car is running, unplug one coil pack at a time, if the missing gets worse, plug it back in and move to the next coil. Once you found the coil that is bad, you know it's either that coil, spark plug or injector. To eliminate the coil, turn car off and swap the bad coil with one of the good ones and see if the miss is still on the same cylinder. If not, it's the coil. If it is, it's the spark plug or injector. Proceed the same step with the spark plug, that will determine what needs replacing

    Cheers. I thought it might have been but wasn't 100% sure...seems quite straight forward to access, I like it.
