Thats one of the only times I scrape my undercarrage. If I go really quick around this one turn then I can bottom out... done that once or twice lol. Other than that Its just scraping if I go too fast up and down some driveways I will obviously scrape.

I keep saying Im going to drop only about 1". I love the look of your suspension setup. Being slammed does look cool, but its just silly if you actually drive your car and care about it...

Finally replaced the original spark plugs after 141 000 miles... Also cleaned the MAF, and very happily just passed the e-test with extremely low (very good) readings. Next is replace a worn out guibo. Going to wait another week or 2 before I take off the winter wheels.
