the driveshaft hits my gt body

I have a problem with my 2006 gt after installing eibach pro-kit springs the driveshaft hits the car body from below in hard launches or power shifting is there any solution for this?
I have 20" wheels
One-piece driveshaft
Eibch pro-kit lowers the back by 1.5"

There must be something wrong with the driveshaft because I'm lowered 1.5 with sr springs and I have no problem. I would get it checked out before it breaks

Have you checked your tranny mounts? Or your upper control arm maybe messed up.

The bushings of the control arms are old

They could be loose. I think the upper control arm may be the problem. May have broke or busted a weld. It keeps rear end pinion angle correct.

If you lowered it you need an adjustable upper control arm to correct your pinion angle

I agree it sounds like a worn out bushing allowing extra free play. Make sure to check all the bushings in your whole suspension too. If one is old and worn out, chances are there's others on their way out.

Pinion angle is very important too. Make sure you get your adjusted at your earliest convenience at the very least.

The stock upper control arm isn't adjustable. It also might be the panhard bar. The stick one is not adjustable and when you lower the car it pushes the rear axle towards the driver side. You can measure it using the fenders and the tires. Replacing the lower control arms helps with wheel hop dramatically. It could be a combination of all. If you get new lower control arms get adjustable or else you'll need relocation brackets for them since you're lowered.
