      I raised my car to the height you are now so I wouldn't be low until my air is installed. So...

      Lower it.

      I cant lower it any more..my exhaust drags on EVERYTHING.

      How do you guys lower it so much and not have exhaust problems? Im prob gonna have to get new piping done so its higher up...hopefully it works.

      I took the bumpstops and the helper springs out in the front but in the rear i still have the bumpstops in.

      I dont want to void the warranty.

      There ya go.

      With my coils almost all the way down (22 1/4" gtf) the ride was a bit bouncy, but not uncontrollable or too bad. At 23 1/4" it feels stock.
