King springs uneven hight

I installed a set of lowered king springs in my hj wagon a few years back along with all new bushes ball joints etc.
All gaurd hights are within a few mls of each other but it looks lower in the rear, do i go super lower spring in the front or standard springs in the rear to level out the look.
Ideas or help is much appreciated.
Thanks Andrew

You could go a set of Super Lows"50mm" for the front but you may have to roll the guards,otherwise the guard cuts into the sidewall of your tyre.I did this on my wagon,panelbeaters don't like it much,haha.Mine scrapes a bit here and there only on the tread of the tyre but you get used to it.Sometimes when making a hard turn into, say a driveway I have to reverse and do it twice,but not very often.
Low=30mm
Super Low=50mm
Mega Low =75mm???.I've got Super Lows all round!...

Yeah HK Wagon.I'm pretty sure they are the same for most models but they could be slightly different.I bought some for 6 cyl because the V8 one's where a bit more heavier duty!...

whoa!!!

you can buy spring spacers from pedders and the like, 5mm, 8mm, 12mm, 20mm - front and rear - much cheaper and easier to add to the rear springs than buying new springs. they are made from neoprene. that would be my first option...
