yeah im' lowered! rolling on sportlines!
i slow down alot on speedbumps and such because if i go fast, it seems that my struts are breaking haha. my car already rubs some, i bet yours has some scratches, but youre still driving with it and its fine, since you would have said otherwise prolly

i can't decide between silver or black

i should be fine right? 2 inch drop
i baby my car so i try to avoid bumps and such.
aslogn as the bar does'nt get caught on the road and the car doesn't flip over or the front falls off, i shoudl be fine.

what do you think?
i'm currently in chicago suburbs, but will be going down to missouri in the fall where the roads will be much better

I dont know man it dont take much and I'm 1.5 and I rub on every one of her speedbumps where she lives I literally have to slow down to less then 1 mph and creep over them. I also have to hit them at an angle and even then sometimes I bottom out still. Yeah if you baby it you'll be fine scan the road if you're familiar with a particular shopping center that you know has brutal speed bumps avoid them if you are going down a road that you are familiar with, if you see something in the middle of the road avoid it as the brace might snag it...I hit a piece of metal or something and the brace snagged it yesterday and it just sounded nasty LOL.

Yeah my struts are screwed they have been like since the 2nd day I was lowered I'm on sportlines too! It also depends upon the design of the speedbump too...here at summerwinds is where I live my speedbumps are fine I can go over them at a good rate of speed...however mandy's which is my fiancee where she lives they are brutal and built up.

yeah i still have the SVT

hmm, alright alright, i hope i don't snag anything then haha, i usually scan the road. when i drive on the highway, its usually more difficult to scan the road, but they are usually quite smooth.
there really aren't too many speed bumps around where i live, i just know of the construction zone bumps from the road being ripped up haha
