BBK Long Tubes w/ high flow cats + lowering?

Hello class!

This is my first time posting. I am the proud owner of a Windveil blue 2007 GT. I'm currently running BBK long tube headers w/ high flow cats and 20 inch rims w/ 255/35R20 tires. Is anyone running somewhat of a similar set up? I'm really tempted to lower my car, but I'm a bit concerned with rubbing, especially on the cats. I've tried to look around the forms but haven't found anything on this. I'm thinking about maybe going with a 1 inch drop instead of a 1.3 or 1.5?

Welcome to the site, my good friend has an 08gt with 18" wheels and lowered 1.5. He has an off road midpipe and it's close to the ground. He cannot go over certain size speed bumps without the exhaust scraping. I would go 1" drop.

I'd suggest Ford Racing p springs 1" anything lower won't scrape but your ride will be a lot rougher or you might have clearance issues in the wheel well with the 20s I have the p springs with 19 staggered Amrs and it's more than enough clearance wise!

Check out my garage. I'm running 20" rims, Elibach lowering springs, Kooks long tube headers with cats and have had no problems with bumping the underside of my ride.
