With that said, my car's too low that I managed to destroy the front aero diffuser, left and right air guides, as well as bend both of my FI canisters in 48 hours. My car can literally scrape on a burrito. I'm switching to coilovers.
This doesn't make sense to me...

Swift = 1.2" F - 1.0" R
Ark GT-S = 1.4" F - 1.2" R

That's less than a 1/4" difference front and rear going from Swift to Ark. That's like the thickness of an iPhone. How can only dropping that much more all of a sudden cause you to scrape everywhere and damage mufflers?

When I had my '91 Miata, I had it lowered on coilovers, 1.75" front and 1.5" rear. That car sat a lot lower than a Z on Ark springs and I didn't bottom out and scrape on stuff with it at all. The only issue I had was a little scrubbing on full lock in the front.

Not arguing, just trying to understand that post.
