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..

If you want to raise it a little i would buy into the eibach pro kit which i believe is a 1.6" front and 1.4" rear drop. Which would still look good with your 17's.

what's the cheapest way to do this that's safe..someone mentioned adding extra rubber spring pads all around.. thoughts on that? i would just need to change the springs right.. the shocks and whatever else are reusable?

i have the eibach pro kit springs on my e30 with 17" rims IMO the front still sits kinda high. car looks really good. i smashed my oil pan pulling into a parking lot in leaside right beside the cibc off laird ave when my car was at stock height and at the time my struts were brand spanking new!
