Been driving very low cars daily for years now. Never given me any real issue.
A few weeks back, I let my brother borrow my car for the day while his car was getting work done.
Mid afternoon a get text with a picture of what looks like my oil pan torn open. Failed to believe so.
This is what I saw when I got home:
Raised man-hole on a hill caught pan and ripped it open, cracking the block up the side of the motor. Bent inner tie rod, torn tension rod mount, bent driver side exhaust, broke engine and tranny mounts.
Bro took care of cost and I got it fixed ASAP. $500 motor from local wrecker yard with 130k on the motor. Mounts from RockAuto.com. A special thanks to my buddies David and Josh at NSPerformance for getting the car swapped in 5 days flat. New mounts, timing kit, fan pulley bracket, fixed PS leak, fixed suspension, recharged AC. Great work.
The duct tape is my doing lol.
A little interior love. Not too bad for 264k.
I also had my local exhaust shop take care of the exhaust. Raised the cat flanges, kept stock y-pipe, 2.25" from y-pipe to stock mufflers. So much more clearance under the car. No pics yet.
And Ms.Thang, all cleaned up at Wrong Fitment Crew car meet in Charlotte, NC.
