I am keen to lower the VS and i can get all the springs for $160 but everyone i have rang to fit them is charging tons in labour

I was wondering if anyone knew on here how to do it and if they would help me out? I would happily pay you it its reasonable Smile

how much are you going to lower it? are you doing the shocks? just did mine took best part of the day to do, i did it. i paid 139 for front springs 139 rear springs (king springs) 135 each front shock (kyb) and 60 each rear shock. didn't need rears but just wanted the job done correctly

FYI you should do the front shocks as its a bigger job to change them and you will need a wheel alignment anyway, it will save you in the long run.

Agreed with wild vt as above.

When you pull out the front strut you may find that your strut top may be due for replacing aswell, so best to change them anyways. Ive got some shortened struts here with low km you can have for 150 (i have coilovers now) they fit VR-VY.

Also have a look on the forums for lowered springs for sale, they are exxy new and can get a bargain 2nd hand on the forums eg justcommodores.com.au streetcommodores.com.au

If your after a genuine price on the Labour, give Matt at Kensington Park Tyrepower a call and tell him Tom with the VT Senator sent ya.
