Hey guys, I'm interested in buying a front lip or a new front bumper. I have the Eibach Prokit right now, and I was wondering how much front bumper clearance everyone else has. I want to have a kit that looks good, but I need something that is drivable every day. Please list your springs, your bumper/lip, the height the front is off the ground, and the drivability of it. Thanks guys.

Buddy

I've got the CWest front lip, which looks like the car is lowered about an inch in the front. I have the stock suspension for a Touring. I don't have problems with my driveway curb or speedbumps.

I plan on using the front lip as a snowplow this winter...:lmfao:

I have the Nex suspension...a bit stiffer than stock. Lowered the car 1.5"...it scraped. .... then brought it back up to 3/4", no scrapes whatsoever. I have a stock front bumper. IS the eibach like 9/16" lowered or something?....I'd think that'd be fine...

(Lower valences, spoilers, lips.....will always find SOMEthing to scrape on....)

Looks beautiful Dave. Really clean. Any plans on changing wheels and lowering it in the future?

GTC's are nice. My friend has a set and they look better in person than in pictures. You getting silver?

Not sure if this helps at all, but my problems after the eibach kit are more geared towards the mud guards. After the spring install, I have about 3 inches between the end of the guard and the ground. I'd imagine the lip would be about the same.

sometimes on hills, just gotta watch it on speed bumps and the like. It's not usually a problem.

Well, I plan on watching out. As it is now, I drive it like it's an inch off the ground. The whole lip thing isn't looking too promising. I was hoping that the GReddy lip with the Eibach drop wouldn't put me dangerously close, but now that I think more and more about it, it would be much safer for my bumper if I kept it stock.
