Having low exhaust

Speed bumps, elevated train tracks, steep climbs suck. Especially in shopping areas and campgrounds. I haven't even lowered my car and I have trouble. Reason why low exhaust. So any tips on crossing speed bumps?

Go kind of diagonal across them. That's what I do and it never hits my exhaust anymore

Re: Having low exhaust

You really need to alter your driving style after getting low hanging exhaust or a considerable drop. No more entering driveways or inclined areas straight on...you must do it at an angle or you'll tear stuff up.

Avoid speed bumps and elevated obstructions on the roads, and if you can't, take your time...creep over the speed bumps so you don't tear a hangar off or damage your k-member.

How low does your exhaust hang? I'd almost think something's not right under there if it's hanging down that low...

Re: Having low exhaust

Lowered cars are a *****. Just go slow, and like everyone else has said, go at an angle. Try to avoid those things as much as possible.
