Lowering this car???

I have a 2000 v6. I recently got a dual exhaust system. And the exhaust run lower than the car... There might be 4 to 5 inches of clearance under these exhaust... But I wanna lower the car bc it's on 17s and it looks like a freakin monster truck. Too much fender room. So I was wondering will lowering this car be a good idea?

Mine had no issues, just get good springs and caster camber plates. It's also a very good time to get new struts and shocks since you'll have everything apart. Then get it aligned and you'll be good to go

I do have to avoid really big speed bumps, but normal ones are fine

Re: Lowering this car???

My Roush is lowered about 1 1/2" with a large front air splitter, and it isn't too bad driving around although there are spots I have to be careful...

You'll be fine...you just have to adjust your driving habits. No more entering fast food parking entrances or any moderately steep inclines without going at an angle.

Stay away from speed bumps and watch those cement/rebarb posts, your chin spoiler will learn to hate you if you park on top of one.

This is all great advice. Sonicpony pretty much nailed driving a lowered car. A lot of times, when I can, I back in when I park so that the bumper block becomes a non-issue...
