Even King superlows will not get you that low. Short of re-compressing/cutting superlows (I don't think anyone would recommend that), I've heard that 2G springs/struts can get you up to an inch lower, and they work on the front of 1Gs. So a 2G strut and superlow setup might be the go, as for right quality, it will be tight, expect to hear some new rattles.

You could alway hit up Jules for his supplier, remember he said he had a 7" drop:jump: :freak:


Are the "2nd gen struts" from the MX6 only or do struts from a 626 work as well?

jumbo 3 inch dropd will do that

in fact I think with the tyre edge right on thew gaurd and you will have to lip them.

As for shocks - due to only way to get a shock to last woudl be to chuck some cheap monroes and keep replacing them. Other wise do a custom shorted strut

I looked into this when I upgraded, and the part numbers for 2G mx6 and 626 struts are the same, at least for pedders, monroe and kyb. I'm talking about the front *only*, i didn't even bother checking rears as its been debated to death on the US forums, and they don't work.
