OK now that this is in the right section.......I have long tubes now and I had them on my 95 and 98 GT's all of them lowered. I only had clearance issues when going over speed bumps, or driveways with a sharp incline. Other than that, no probs

no prob if you run iso's or if you have 18 in wheels. i was scraping on everydamn thing with my 17s but the new rims gave me just a tad more room and havent scraped on the drive way and other places i knew i was touching on.

all i know is before when i would turn my wheel all the way left or right my tires would scrub the inner fender. and everytime i came and backed out of my fudged up driveway with the giant dropoff i no longer hit.

So If I dropped and 1.5 - 2.0 inches I should be ok? I have 17 inch chrome Cobra R's on my ride now. I just don't want to be scraping everyting.

How much lowered? I have H&R SuperSports and I already fear speed bumps and sharp inclines (AND sudden dips) and I have my stock pipes. I had to raise my Kenne Bell heat exchanger from where they told me to put it cause I almost ripped it out a couple times. I've got about a three inch clearance under the body. I don't think I could go with long tubes. I'm thinking equal length shorties and an OR "H" pipe.

I'm thinking about buying a camcorder this year. I'll have to show some of the messed up steep driveways and retarded intersections. And you ought to see them in winter (but the pony don't drive in winter - See "Winter Beater/Commuter)
