I personally don't like lowering cars, every time you come to a speed bump or steep driveway you either A) have to slow down to a foot per hour or B) you end up scraping the whole underside/bumpers.

I guess it all depends on what matters most: Better handling which leads to a more exciting drive, or being able to go over speed bumps faster which saves time when parking :nana

Not sure what the speed bumps in the US are like but in the UK I have found that the faster you go over certain types the less "bump" you get

The concrete ones in the UK are best driven over at 39mph - anyone else notice this?

Hah, thats great. Anyway, I found something interesting today and it looks like my suspension setup will be coming soon. I found a nice hole in my front right (passenger side) shock. Yeah, it's pretty big too.
