macdiesel ^^^ got pics. I'd be more worried about trashing the exhaust header on the speed bumps. In Chicago we have speed humps, like a 5 ft long speed bump. Will seriously destroy regular car gong over at speed let alone a lowered one. When I walk my dogs I can hear people when they blast over them. Doesn't send good.

There is a thread in the showroom from last year on a lowered SVT...sounds like speed bumps can be an issue...
My car is lowered 2''+ w/ cfm's 4-pointer stress bar & I found I scuff the 6'' diameter stealth muffler then anything else.
