That is what you really have to watch out for, a normal person's reaction would be to drive over big rocks/objects thinking it will pass thru the middle.......but not the case when your oil pan in right there and very low.
i now understand the issues with have a lowered car lol.. the last few weeks have been exciting i didn't know the roads in toronto are so horrible.. cracks, bumps and potholes everywhere.. haven't had any issues manoveuring around but it does make driving around a bit more intense...
wifey wants to consider raising the car as i suspected she would.. any ideas what i should be looking for in terms of a slight raise? inch or 2?.. stock height would look kinda ugly i think..
