yes superlows are fine trust me I scrape everywhere with superlows ultra lows would be a killer and probbably cause more damage that worth..I presume with standard struts they would ride liek an absolute bitch too...

The ride is only crappy if:

A) You still expect it to feel like stock.
B) You use crappy struts that are worn. Then it wil be bouncey.
C) You expect that lowered springs will not have an increased spring rate.

is the ride saggy? bumpy?
Both, they seem to have the drop without the uprating that a spring that low should have. Ie, they perform just like a chopped stock spring (i'm no expert on that though). Go figure.

Chopping a spirng increases it's spring rate. Basically, the shorter the spring material is (the length of the piece of metal, not the height), the higher the spring rate. That is why you see commodores, etc that seem to bounce when they have chopped springs. The shock/strut can't handle the high spring rate.

King Springs do have packing springs. They have a few loops really close together at one end, so that it doesn't increase the spring rate too much, but also keep the spring captive at full drop.
