lol looks like you're not experienced enough driving a lowered car yet. this is too big of a jump from stock height to the height you are now. Learn to drive slow,angle out, observe road conditions, and determine if your car can make it or not before you try to join the slammed club.

... I've made a mental map of all roads I have to avoid.

Yea, i try to avoid Mira Mesa Blvd and Kearny Mesa rd. And if I'm going somewhere that I'm not familiar with, I use google map to find all the speed bumps and steep driveways that I should try and avoid.

Noob? Ha! I've been driving this car for eight years lowered 2.5+ inches. Just decided to go to the flo... just ended up being too much for the daily things I do.

Did anybody actually read the initial post to the end where it says,
"Anyone realize they were too low and have a good story to go with it"?

Just wonderin. Just seems like this turned into a "hey look what this idiot did" thread. :eusa_wall:

FYI....a 2.5" drop on a 6G is nothing. Still a finger or two gap.

I have high centered a couple times but it wasn't anything I couldn't back my car off myself. My main issue is my front bumper scraping, and now since I installed my Konis.....my subframe and frame rails hitting the ground.

I'm probably going to fab up some skid plates for the parts of my front lip that make contact with the ground, and maybe some Jeep style rock sliders for my subframe and frame rails.

But yeah, whatever possessed you to enter an auto car wash is beyond me, but even more so that you kept going when you drove your LCA up on the guide rails.
