question for OEM body kit owners.

i drive an accord coupe thats dropped an 1.5" in the front and 1.25" in the back with 18" wheels. i was wondering if anyone with similiar specs as my car have noticed an increase of body scraping after installing the oem kit? just curious of what your insight is

lol it's gonna get scratched eventually no matter what u try to do, unless u not drive it. my old '03 accord had teins w/ a 2"/1.5" f/r drop and some times my cat would get scratched. it just happens u can't really stop it.

its pretty much a given that you'll scrape, but what im curious is how much more often will you scrape. right now, i dont really rub but i occasionally do if im not careful.

how low is the OEM front lip compared to the front bumper without a lip?

I am also curious about this. Will a simple "angling" over speedbumps or driveways help avoid scratching with a 1"-1.5" drop?

angling will help a lot

1.5 front ? then you should be fine, occasionally, maybe once or twice down the driveway, 1.5 is still considered high, so you'll be fine.. GL to ya

You will scrape every now and then, but with your drop u can avoid it by going on an angle. Im dropped on Tein SS all the way to the bottom and my lip is approx 3" or less off the ground and i do scrape if im not careful. But its not noticeable, its all on the bottom part of the lip.
