ground clearance on kaminari lip kit

i like the look of the kaminari lip kit but i will have to drive it in the michigan winter, which can be bad. i want to know if anybody knows around how far off the ground it is with a stock suspension. next summer i will lower the car and buy a junker for winter but this winter i wont have enough for a junker and a lip so i was just wondering. i know a lot of people have this kit so it would be greatly appreciated if they chimed in.

i got the eibach sport system and i have about 4 1/4" clearance. it is the same as the stock side skirts and bottom of the car. you should be good. it only adds about 2" or so onto the stock bumper

I don't really remember what the clearance was with mine when I was stock but you should be fine. I know as of right now, I have the Eibach Pro's on and I have about 5 1/2-6" of clearance under it.

I know it makes a GREAT snow plow

Anyone know what kind of clearance a Xenon front bumper gets? I have to drive through the damned michigan winter also. We get all four seasons, but especially the ones no one likes.
