Do this. Lower it and get an offload midpipe. It'll be loud enough trust me. Headers aren't gonna help you that much for that much money

Then you don't need longtubes you'll pay a fortune when you can use that money somewhere else

I have long tubes and i also have coil overs. Here is a picture of a soup can and the clearance from the ground. The road condition in the Atlanta area are pretty good. If I lived up north forget it. I still rub on Parking lot speed bumps. I honestly am more worried about my TCI transmission pan. You just have to be careful.
