lowering springs on 04 V6 convertible

Looking to mod my '04 V6 pony, 40th anniversary, convertible. She is pretty much stock right now (K&N cold air intake and catback duel exhaust are the only mods right now). I notice when I hit a bump in the road or a small dip, my car will bottom out or scrape (as was the case prior to the exhaust mod as well as after). My fear is that this will only be worse with the lowering springs. Anyone else have an issue with the undercarriage of the stock car scraping/bottoming? What did you do to rectify this issue? Suggestions welcome...

I don't think there is a solution for this issue, you have to deal with the outcomes of lowering the car or keep it stock, mine is stock and still scrape in my driveway, I bought the springs but I didn't installed them, I prefer to keep the stock springs than risk damaging the car.

Damn. Thanks for the input. I was afraid that was going to be the response... I want to get rid of the "I'm on a boat" feel driving down the highway (especially during higher winds) and according to American Muscle, adding the springs with a few other components rids the car of this feel completely. Guess I have some decisions to make... Thank you!

Simple answer is avoid high driveways and speed bumps. It's learning to drive a new car basically but def a better look and feel in handling

Learn how to avoid major bumps and how to slow down for speed bumps. My car is lowered 2.5" front and 2" rear and the only scraping issues I have are speed bumps if I don't take them right, and my driveway. But I just scrape the chin spoiler slightly on the droveway. My exhaust rarely scrapes unless there's a sharp speed bump that I can't take at a good angle.
