Scraping

Hey folks,

i just installed H&R super sport springs on my 02 gt and on some speed bumps i scrape...
i heard when you go over the speed bump in an angle that that can help. maybe you guys can confirm this and/or have other tips for going over speed bumps

I have the same springs with no isolators and I also have long tubes. The best thing to do is to avoid them but if u can't I go really really slow and at a big angle practically sideways that always works for me

Some say you can go side ways which if done right there is a tire on the speed bump at all times causing no scrapes

Take speed bumps at a angle and you will not scrape
And go slow

I avoid them whenver possible too. Any lower and I'll scrape or if I see a really big one I even go so far as to back up and find another way.

But yeah going over them on an angle should keep you from scraping if you go slow there will always be 2 wheels on the bump when the lowest portions of the undercarriage are going over. If you have subframes its even better since the car won't flex at all.

Yep just take it at a sharp angle and you should be fine. I don't scrape often and I'm lower than H&R SS
