(my DD is a 4 wheel drive truck...). Its going to take me a while to get used to having less than 3" of ground clearance. Hopefully I don't completely destroy the headers in the process.


just take every turn at an angle and park away from those curbs, works for me 75% of the time my daily driver is a jeep wrangler with a 4in lift and 35's but i adjusted pretty fast after i scraped my nose a couple times. its also good to know where your headed before you take it out, i for example stay clear from our local parks due to the speed humps, there's no way in hell that i can clear then...(i tried once) car is lowered on stock bolts

Thanks again all. After having had the car for a month or so now, I'm a little surprised at the amount of people that want to race. I suspected I'd run into this occassionally, but its fairly common. I guess they see the Z and assume I'm looking to run. This thing is going to get me into trouble yet.....

Yeah it's just a skosh low in the back. I plan to raise it 1/2" or 1" to even it out or even give it a very slight forward rake.

BTW what is the worry with high speeds and the current rake? I wasn't concerned about it other than aesthetics, but now you have me curious.

I was told it can cause stability issues at higher speeds. This was when I lowered and changed the shocks on my 02 Z. Depends on what you use the car for, drag/mile/road course.
