What would be the best set up for the street. Without ripping off the front bar.

Lowering for the street! Wow! I manage to scrape the front and rear of my Walky up driveways from time to time even without the front spoiler extension on it;

...And my car is stock standard!

Standard Walky ride height is FE2, 20 mm below standard. The first lowered stage in the Kings Springs range is 35mm from standard. After that it just gets too hard to drive the damn things anywhere.

You have have better luck slamming it if you fit some 18s or 19s to the beast ... not a stock look, but I've seen polished FR18s on a walky, and trust me, it looked sik

Thought these pics might help.
I have posted them on threads before, but you may not have seen them.


This is my mate's oringinal Walky. Has lowered springs (think it may be king) and a set of chrome FR18s. This thing turns many heads.


Sh*t quality pic I know, this is another friends car, VL Calais turbo. This pic shows how low he has the kit to the ground. He has Pedders super-low springs.
The crazy thing is...he's lowered it even more since this pic was taken.
I need to get a hold of him when I get a chance and take some more (better quality) pics, because this is one tuff calais turbo.
