When I put my WW RS kit on I reaised my Tein coilovers because I already scraped on a lot of stuff. It is fine now.

It is less than stock height but not a whole lot. I have fat fingers and I would say probably 1.5 fingers in the front and 2 in the rear.

i dont see why having a greddy kit and 3/4 rs kit presents any particular problems? obviously if you attempt to take on a steep driveway straight on, you're going to scrape. just learn how to angle......its really not that hard.

you tow hook sits a lot lower than your stock bumper, so if you don't hit your tow hook driving around a lot then you should be fine with a lip up front. If you are too worried get an OEM kit, it doesn't hang as low. You just gotta keep an eye out for everything on the road.

I couldn't have said it better. Someone listen to the smart man. :laugh: exactly how low are you dropped?

Obviously having a kit wouldn't be a problem [email protected]$5.. what i mean is scraping with the kit on.. hit a steep hill straight on?? :shrug: the lude is 2inches dropped..
Thats the problem hes talking about.
I dont think a kit is going to extend the bottom as far as you think it does. your front lip will prolly only extend your bottom a half inch.

yes if you hit a steep ass hill straight on or something else that would make it scrape.....it will scrape

thats what i was talking about, genius. what'd you think i was talking about, putting the kit in your room and driving around without it? :rolleyes: the steep hill was an example of what NOT to do. you act as if having a greddy lip and being dropped 2 inches is going to put you on the ground. pearl type sh has an R33 front and is dropped 2.5", and he manages fairly well. again, just learn how to angle.

That's Cali though..you could slam it and wouldn't have a problem like here.. I live in Mass man.. home of the potholes..I don't know about you but my car is dropped 2 inches and it is wicked low and adding the kit on makes it even worse..Yes raise it! But all i wanted to know was if you guys scraped.. that is all..wow..

you know me man....I'm dropped on tein ss coilovers, 1.5 inches + (no finger gap in rear, maybe a finger in the front) an I scrape occassionally...just angle over everything, no matter how much of a bump it is (unless you're on the freeway of course :rolleyes: ) an take it slowly, you shouldn't have too many problems. like they said, usually it's the tow hook that hits first, so don't worry bout it too much. as for the potholes....just avoid them or drive around them

pot holes and bad roads don't only exist in Mass. Have you ever been to LA, the roads here are terrible, dips, pot holes, and unfinished roads everywhere. My car is a daily driver and I used to have the MUGEN front and I was dropped 3" sure i scraped here and there, but I still got around. You just have to angle here and there and be careful.

yea...our driveways here arent very friendly. my car is dropped about 2" (yes, with kit) and i dont scrape that much. i usually only scrape when i'm being rushed (by oncoming traffic or cops following me). if i take my time, then i'm usually fine. unless its just an absurd dip in which case i find an alternate route. i never said to raise it. i just suggested angling b/c its usually good enough to navigate most roads. you asked for problems, i offered a solution, and you blew up at it.
