    I am looking to get a chin spoiler after I lower my car. Has anyone with one had a problem with it hitting on bumps or anything. I will be putting H&R supersports on so it will be kinda close to the ground

    The Mach one chin spoiler is pretty level with your bumper I never heard
    of anyone having clearance issues with the use of a chin spoiler on lowered mustangs.
    It attaches to the bumper itself and they are easy to install you just have
    to install it correctly.
    I think chin spoiler look great though! O0

    You will like the Eibach Pro Kit springs.
    They give a nice 1.5" drop all the way around.

    chin spoiler makes a huge visual impact on the stock front bumper.

    My stang is not "lowered" with the Bullitt suspension, so no scrapes here, but I can see where you probably do need to keep watch out for those parking lot stops when parking head-in. As far as installation, you have to decide whether you want the spoiler flush with the front of the bumper, or flush with in the rear of the spoiler flush with the wheelwell. What I did what to tape up mine both ways to see which I liked better and went with the latter choice. Here's a few of mine just after install.....

    be very careful when you are going to park and such, with the H&Rs you will be really low...just a little lower than my car, and my car is like a 1/4 inch from hitting the curbs when i park. hopefully i wont have problems when i put on my cobra bumper.

    I have supersports and I scrape my chin spoiler occasionally. Not when cruising, but going up/down steep inclines or going up/down curbs.

    Just be careful.
