I will say that with the rake you have, the Arqray lip will be very close to the ground without much clearance for any road debris you may encounter...

Another thing to consider are speed bumps, pot holes, and dips in the road...

Add a windsplitter under it. Itll protect the lip and take all the damage. Sneed i believe offers replacement free of charge if the splitter ever breaks.

the combination of your drop and smaller diameter wheels would really make it difficult for you to run that front setup. with 19's the car can remain at a drivable height.

for what it's worth i got rid of this setup because the arqray lip didnt sit low enough to my liking (changed to the hamann setup)

that car would have looked really good if it would have been just a bit lower, like if it had been running 18's instead of 19's
