Another lowering question

Ok, I would like to have my vette a little lower. However I have no idea how much would be ideal. So, could the guys that have done it, give the amount of inches they have between the fender lips and the ground (both front and rear) without having the car hitting a speed bump or without having the wheel to close to the fender, so that it could hit.

If possible could you post some pictures ?

Thanks a lot.

My 72 LT-1 runs about 27" rear 26.5" front for resonable street driving clearance (to the bottom edge of fender opening at highest point.)
