      You got the attention that you wanted? finished? or did you expect someone to look up local towing companies in your area for you?

      If you're not happy about driving your own car that low static:

      1. Sell coils
      2. Buy airride
      3. Save money on towing
      4. ???
      5. Profit

      I thought the whole point of having coils is so you can raise your car up, and lower it later? I understand raising it up will put your tow off but it's better than pissing fluid on the side of a highway 300 miles from your destination.

      If you are worried about bugs and chips, get over it. Get blue painters tape and tape the f*ck out of it. Who knows, you may create a new fad. I just helped my dad put his car on a tow dolly and scraped the **** out of the bumper... And it wasnt lowered, he got the dolly form Uhaul. If its mileage your worried about... ROFL. Its pretty sad that you can't look up prices yourself. Look up truck rentals in your area or ask mom or dad to do it for you.

      I towed my car home when I ETS'd from Ft Hood. I had to pull the front bumper, raise the car a significant amount, and it was still a bitch to put on the trailer. I actually split on of the belly plastics in half. Oh and the trip was 1500 miles total, and I probably spent 700 in just gas. The whole setup itself cost me $1,000+. So no, don't trailer your car. Its not worth the amount, plus its stupid.

      VERY FEW cars deserve a trailer, and I doubt your car fits the bill...
