It has a 1.6 in drop in the rear and 1.4 in the front (eibach springs). It sits very low. All the car has exhaust wise is an SLP Loudmouth. My plan is to put LT's and a 3" true dual system on it. But with those drop springs it just seems like it would be a recipe for disaster. Does anyone have pictures of a similar setup?

Granted mine is a '97 I have the Eibachs with Kooks LT's and I don't really have a problem with ground clearance. Only problem I have is that my floor jack does not slide under it. I will see if I have any pictures and post them up for you.

Thanks I think as long as I pic the correct headers they should tuck up fine. Just worried about those pesky speedbumps :mad:

Yea, its a problem.

I don't have true duals but do have LTs and with the cat relocated to the end of the driver LT there is only about 2 and 5/8ths inch ground clearance under the cat.

So before long you have scraped the bottom of the left cat open.

My car is lowered some, not quite as much as yours but I haven't had problems with bottoming out except on very extreme speed bumps. Btw when you get true duals are you keeping your slp exhaust ?
