2019 Performance Pack 2 and Lowering Suspension

Hi Everyone,

Im from Australia and have an MY 19 GT, I'm looking to buy the PP2 Front Splitter to add to GT.

Just wondering if any here with a PP2 and has lowered it, if there were any issues with scrapping the front extra lower splitter that comes wih the PP2.

Is there a safe height to lower if anything is safe?

Thanks

Tony

I don't think there is a simple or definitive answer to this question, it depends on the obstacles in the areas where you drive and whether you will avoid them or not

I don't own a PP2 and haven't lowered it, but these cars are pretty low to start with . . . and yes the splitter does stick out . . . and if you lower the car then it will be lower . . . I would expect problems with things like curbs and steep driveway entrances . . . don't know what else to say.

Lowered vehicles are truly a double edge sword. They look menacing and have better hanging characteristics for the most part, but are very susceptible to road hazards and parking stops.

There is a product I use called Scrape Armor that installs on the underside of the front bumper. It functions as a skid plate for the front fascia and actually adds strength to the bottom of the bumper cover. Pricey but its saved my bacon a few times and it comes with a wear out warranty. The downside is the thickness of the product (1/4 inch guess) while not much, it does close the ground clearance a little. But it takes the punishment not the car.

Ford sales one inch lowering springs and doesn’t recommend you go any lower. At one inch you still have plenty of room imo. I have extra spoiler under the front of my 15 and lowered 1 3/4 without issue

I own a 19 GT PPL2. I have not lowered it.

The extra splitter will hit on standard height curbs so you have to be careful anyways.

I have managed to rub the underside a couple of times when entering or exiting a driveway that is too steep, but haven't had any problems with speed bumps (so far). Not a real issue though since I take it slow in those situations.
