Conversions & Hybrids - Enough ground clearance??? Exhaust cutout seems too low.
06-20-2011, 09:18 AM
So i was test fitting my cutout and damn does it seem a low. I finally got my car back to roller mode, and wanted to check my clearances. The car is a couple inches taller than my planned ride height. What do you guys think is too low to the ground. The cutouts come down right in the middle of the car.
Can't read the ruler in the pic, but its about 5inches from the ground.
This is how the car is sitting now, will get around a 2" drop all around.

No one else has really tight ground clearances?

Thats kinda scary low. You might snag that on a speed bump if your not careful :-/
Can you tuck the cutout up under the body a little more where it doesnt hang down under the frame at all? Since your car is a couple inches higher then your desired ride height, you might be gambling with a cutout sitting that low unfortunately.

I had a Silverado that had cutouts that were originally 4 inches above the ground and they hit shit all the time. Being that close to the engine all that shock in transferred to the headers and header bolts. Not good at all, plus damage to the cutouts themselves sucks. I would rotate them somehow if possible or move them fore or aft. Good luck.

Sadly it seems i cant rotate them anymore. My dd is a fairly low car when i drop it for the summer. Im going to climb under and check the lowest point. I never bottom out on anything but my front lip.
