    im after a pair of kings ultra lows for tha rear of my IRS V6 VP, but do places stock them or only go to super lows?

    bcause ive gone around 2 alot of places asking for prices, and they've all said super low is tha lowest made, n when i went the suspension center, the guy pretty much cracked tha sh*ts at me when i asked for ultra lows, sayin they dont exsit n so on.................when they do,

    so wat shops sell em??

    (when i was askin i was askin for a vr irs, but all tha same)

    lol, they do make em, just gotta order them in, theyre prolly not wanting to sell them as theyre illegal to use on the roads due to how much they lower the car, really, supers are illegal too, because they make it less than 2/3 original suspension travel.

    anyway, what places have you tried? i work at autobarn and if someone wants ultras, theyll get em. i tell them theyre illegal, then its their choice.

    Ok you want the following part numbers:

    Front:
    KHFL-22SSL which is Ultralow front springs for VB-VP.

    Rear (Two Choices):

    KHRL-46SSL which is Extra Super Low rear for IRS Commodores.

    But there is also KHRL-46SSSL which is Ultra Low for the rear.

    well i tried supercheap auto, repco image auto (small auto shop) and suspension center, also auto-pro, but i dont think i asked about hieghts there just general price

    i thought that mayb they jus didnt say em bcause there illegal, but tha bloke at suspension center seriously craked tha ****s when i asked him, his like every1 askes for them but they dont make em, when i no they do

    cheers for tha info, ill most likely buy ultras, n leave tha fronts at lows, wats tha $$ on em bout 98buks or sumthing?

    I've got Kings KHRL-46SSSL (Ultralow) on the rear of my VP Calais and the diff still has about 130mm clearance, and roughly 25mm between the bumpstops, it's a nice height but not extremely low.

    Sure thing, here's a photo.

    You could always get BMW springs (so I've heard) or get proper ones compressed to lower it even more.

    Cheers!

    The fronts are King KHFL-22SSL, the lowest part (exhaust) has 100mm clearance, it hits going too fast over humps.

    hi thanks for that
    well, i looked again, and wouldn't u know it

    this is what i found (no wonder i didn't find it first time)

    75-85 GEMINI TX - TG WAGON & P/VAN A KHRS-07 KHPR-20

    are these correct?
    are these and VN interchangeable?

    then i went and found these

    78-93 COMMODORE SEDAN VB-VP ULTRA LOW A KHFL-22SSL A KHPR-20SL *
    78-86 COMMODORE SEDAN VB-VK 6CYL S/LOW A KHPR-22SL A KHRL-20HD *
    78-86 COMMODORE SEDAN VB-VK V8 S/LOW A KHPR-22 A KHRL-20HD *
    86-93 COMMODORE SEDAN VL-VP 6CYL S/LOW A KHPR-22SL A KHPR-20HD *
    86-93 COMMODORE SEDAN VL-VP V8 S/LOW A KHPR-22 A KHPR-20HD *
    93-95 COMMODORE SEDAN VR V6 S/LOW A KHFL-47SL # A KHPR-20HD *

    what does the HD mean, and it's not actually stamped 'HD' on the spring, so how do i know if its for the gemi or the vN?

    id suggest looking in the normal section of the springs, low, standard and raised. i think you have yourself a set of "low" springs.

    and the HD is heavy duty im pretty sure

    i've just got Superlows, and they do the job just fine. They scrape on speed humps too, which is a bitch but what can you do.

    unless you're worried about the car looking that extra inch lower, i would just go with Supers mate. Ultra is too low (in my opinion of course - each to their own) But i know how much the car scrapes with supers, and ultra's i imagine would scrape a whole lot more ( = not good)
