    I've just recently got a VT which has super low fronts with ultra low rears (done by previous owner very recently). car looks great, but i've decided it doesn't have enough ground clearance at the back for the places i need to drive, eg: my girlfriend lives on a steep dirt road, etc.

    So, I am willing to swap just my REAR king ultra lows, for some REAR king super lows.

    my ultra low rears are virtually brand new and have only travelled a couple of thousand kilometres on the car, so I'm looking to swap them for some new or near new super low springs to raise the back a touch.

    I'll find out the part numbers if required, and i'll try and get a photo of my VT to show what it looks like on its suspension.

    I am located in Ringwood (eastern suburbs), VIC.

    cheers,
    James

    *** EDIT: the part number for my rear king "ultra lows" is KHRL-46SLHD.
    I'm after rear king springs, (part number: KHRL-46HD) which for a VT-VZ sedan is "super low" according to the king spring catalogue. ***

    ~ bump ~

    I've got a set of spring compressors which makes it very easy to swap rear springs without the need to undo shocks etc.

    I am willing to meet somewhere and help put some 'king ultralows' in a car in exchange for some 'king superlows' if anyone wants to lower their car a touch more.

    cheers.

    digger747 - in the rear, the springs are seperate from shocks in all commodores. they'd be different from a VR though cos most VR's are live axle, not IRS, but even the IRS models (acclaim, SS, calais, etc) probably have different springs i think.
