  • How LOW is too low on a car

    i have a saturn sc, which is lower 2"
    and i just bought my EVO 5 body kit..

    i kinda measure really quickly without installing my body kit.

    with the side skirt.
    i about 2.5" from the ground...
    anyone have experience with lowering car??

    is 2.5" enough to clear any speed bump!!!!!!
    or i should re-install my OEM shock and spring!!!

    or 2.5" from the ground is enough

    you're going to need to be very careful driving around with bumps and curbs and such, that's not going to give much forgiveness in some situations.

            the Evo kit is real low. if you keep it low and install that kit it will give you problems. I went with eibach springs KYB struts and the APC kit and still drag on my driveway if I am not careful

                  thats my biggest issue with body kits. they look great with a drop but it comes at the price of damaging the kit. If I ever get a kit for a car it wil be for show perposes and will probably be bagged. I wish there were more lip kits out there. they look better in my opinion and are not as low as body kits.

                    i have a wagon and its about 2.5 to 3 inches low......lower when showing due to coilovers......if you are worried about the speed bumps i would highly recommend going over them sideways......in other words angle the car when going over them.....that is what i have to do with no kit on my car.
