Wanna to lower my car but...........

I wanna to lower my car for a long time..since 2 years ago but i always afraid that whenever I go over a speed bump or any obstacles, the underside will be rubbed including my body kit. So I was wondering whether you guys who had lowered your cars have this kind of problems.

Depends how low you want to go. I have Neuspeed race springs which is 2.25f and 1.75r on stock shocks for now. I live in SF and i dont have any clearance issues at all in terms of roads or speedbumps. Some places with driveways i go up sideways, other places like friends houses i cant go up at all, its too steep no matter how i approach it. So it all depends on the drop and your area.

What bodykit do you have? Any pictures?
I have the HFP bodykit with HFP suspension and have no problems.

I have the opposite concern ... I'm lowered on Comptech springs and Koni shocks but I don't have the body kit. I don't have any rubbing issues other than my front mud guards sometime scrapes when I go over speed bumps. I would love to put the body kit on my car but I hate it when the front mud guard scrapes!

like 03_av6 said, depends on how low you want to go, where you live, and your driving. with speed bumps i dont go faster than 10 mph unless i want to scrap my car. It also depends on your area cause here in california, we have the worse road and highway condition. Personally, if your using your car as a daily driver, then i would not recommend lowering your car especially since you have a body kit

You could go with ProKit or H-tech springs, but then if you don't think it's enough drop, you're stuck trying to sell them. From what others said on here; H-techs don't do a lot for performance, but then again you can still drive it like a normal car.

It's really simple to choose but there's ALWAYS a sacrifice.

I rub on one particular little pipe and my car is not lowered. You have to be carefull especially if your car is lowered. My last car was slammed on 17 inch wheels riding on Eibach Sportlines on a Integra. Not worth it on a new car, *obviously*. Plus, the new Accords(7th gen MMC and 8th gen) are pretty quick and can get you in a trouble just driving on normal roads so dropping would heighten those concerns.

Alright, that does look cool, but avoiding speedbumps won't save you everytime. Just the other day I had to go thru some roadwork; everything looked ok since all the cones had been moved to the sides of the road. However, just then, I saw this big black line going across the road! It was the shadow created by the 3-4" drop formed by the old road and the newly paved portion meeting. Plus, there is always a fast-food place where you have to make a quick left across traffic into their parking lot, and what awaits you? You got it, a short but steep ramp-like thing that leaves the major road, goes across the sidewalk and into the parking lot.
