is your suspension from the ground. mainly meaing the front bumper, but you can tell me your back too. im really seriously looking into a suspension kit, BUT, am not sure of driveway clearance. so if you know, have pics and or wanna list your kit, please feel free to help me out in many ways. possibly even tell me where you got it from. THX!

how steep is your drive way? you could always lay a large piece of wood over the dip, or do the ricer back-up, or enter at an angle. If hight is really an issue you should go with coilovers

My driveway is not the best for going up. I essentially have to go up it as if I was parallel to the crub. It really sux. But there is no way I want my car any higher. My front tires are tucking already.

Oh man that is nothing at all. I'd clear that no problem. Mine is 10x worse than that. Slam that car man. I'd switch driveways any day.

If I showed you my driveway, you'd go get a 4x4 truck right away. My fenders do rub even though they have been trimmed out, when I enter and exit the incline. I'm just used to it by now. Those who have see me put my car in the garage still wonder how I get it up there safely.

24 7/8" from ground to fender, pretty slammed, and I clear all standard driveway curbs and most dips, with a little side angled driving.

i have the stock sport suspension and i'm already too low to the ground, i think maybe 3-4" from the front lower bumper to ground.

hahaha, stock sport too low? sorry, maybe it's because of how the roads in NY are. from what i hear, they're not they best.
