King Spring Differences

- SSL – Super Super Low – 3 inches (or something)
- SSSL – Super Super Super Low
These are related to King Spring Heights, I’m not 100% sure about the exact heights of the lowering.
Keep in mind that the lower you go, the more likely you are in having to replace with shorter shocks. I did SSSL and had to replace with shortened shocks. It was a great ride after that. With standard shocks, it was a bounce ride at times.
Front Low: Lowers vehicle approximately 50mm below standard.
Rear Low: Lowers vehicle approximately 50mm below standard.
SSSL was not legal in the rear and often bottomed out on speed bumps. As much as I liked a low car, it was a bit painful.
Front Low: Lowers vehicle approximately 40mm below standard.
Rear Low: Lowers vehicle approximately 40mm below standard.
My Dad did SSL rear and SSSL front in his VE Wagon.
I would say yes as it is just a little lower than standard so you should have no problem with SL King Springs and having a legal ride height.
SSL all round is generally legal, but only just. It also depends on the amount of weight you are carrying plus what type of exhaust you have.
Remember, it isn’t always about the springs they make your car a legal height. Its measured at the lower point of the car like the exhaust to make it a legal height.
SSSL all round is probably not legal. I know in my VE it was borderline depending on the weight I was carrying at the time. I never had an issue with mine and was never tested, but, I think if I was ever checked it would’ve been touch and go.
I definitely was low to scrape on some speed bumps which was annoying. I was also running 19inch rims. If I was running smaller, it would’ve been touching the ground! 20s would’ve given me a bit more height, but not a lot.
