Default Ark Exhaust + Lowering springs

Hello, I recently installed an ark exhaust and I am interested in lowering the car next. Just out of curiosity has anyone lowered their car with the ark exhuast? The exhaust is already pretty low, how does it handle being lowered more? Thanks.

I am referring to the type 2 v2. The dual can one. Not DTS. Thanks for the response

Thanks. No I'm running the dts. You should be fine with the grip v2 over speed bumps. Only issue if you are reversing downwards on a steep decline.

ARK Grip lowered on ARK DT-P coilovers ... slalom speed bumps and you'll be alright.
