I was just wondering if anyone else has a lowered fox body that occasionally bottoms out. Mine has been lowered somewhat and always bottoms out on speed bumps even when barely rolling over them. The exhaust is what hits and has been beaten badly. Would larger rims solve this or would I have to go ahead and get a lift kit? The rims are not big they are centerline and I cant tell but I think they are 17"s. If anyone has experience in this area I would appreciate the input.

did you put the springs in? or did the previous owner? what kind of shocks and struts are you running. if they are stock, or of the kyb assortment, some bilstiens, tokico, or other more expensive ones will help you out if your present ones are worn. how much is it lowered? if its 1.5 inches or more than thats your problem, and should get some springs with a more mild drop.

It is pretty much a fact of life with a lowered car, you need to avoid most speed bumps. I have learned over the years how to eyeball a speed bump and know if I can make it or not.

I do know that the front needs springs, at the time i am not able to take care of that but as soon as i can i will. It just tears me up the only way into the parking lot is over speed bumps, and yeah i know its obvious to avoid them but i have no choice, thats why i am seeking other options. does anyone know how much it would cost to have a front set of springs put on?
