LOL rubbin
 
so i finally found the downside to my ebach springs/bilstein sport shocks setup... my girlfriend called and asked if i could pick her and a few of her friends up from class this morning, being the gentleman that i am i said said "hell no" but agreed to do it anyways.
Little did i realize that by a few friends she meant 4... and 2 of them were on the hefty side... after they all crammed in, my car was bottomed out in the rear and wasnt happy about driving up the incredibly steep hill back to her apt.
Moral of the story.... NO FAT CHICKS!!!! :rolleyes:

Your story puts a twist on the thought "I want to lower my car." :)

You might make an exception if they get out and help push your car up the hill. :D

should read " no fat chicks, my suspension is crap" :thumbdwn: its not something id brag about :dunno:



i had my rear seats out and people still insisted on sitting on my bare interior. i had 2 of my bigger friends chillin on my back seat as well as a friend in the passenger floor and never scraped

couldnt fit your fingrs between where the tire was up in my fenders. even on full turns it would only scrape if the car was full of people and there were reasonable bumps during the turn.

proper suspension is key.

oil pan is a seperate issue :rofl:

yes my oil pan was on the ground. couldnt get into alot of stores parking lots including the bank across from mcdonalds and hess in allentown. my car would literally stop dead on the oil pan. stern thought i broke down trying to get into that bank. but in actuality my oil pan just met the ground and literally stopped my car from going forewards. floored it and just spun tires, had to reverse out and have her walk up to the bank .. good times :rofl:

to anyone reading .. no i have never blown an oil pan. not once, not even a crack.

neither did i, and i had on stock springs. its all a matter of hitting the bumps correctly or missing them

well i should hope so if the car was on stock springs!

when my car was fully slammed i used to scrape something, somewhere, on every single drive. there are scratches on my oil pan but its not cracked, and ive hit it pretty hard a couple of times.

i ripped the muffler off my car one day because i challenged a really agressive speed bump, and forgot the muffler is the lowest part of my car at 40mm abouve the ground. fully ripped the thing right off the exhaust pipe. drove the 20km drive back to my house with the unrestrained sound of german engineering!

noexceptions325 08-27-2009 08:10 PM

never scraped... but i bottomed out on a speedbump... my suspension is good.. i love not having the freaking body roll like it did before... Im really wasted right now :) i love being a jr in college
