Just wondering if anyone has tried this before, and if they experience any scraping or steering problems? Also if anyone knows if it will pass the minimum 100mm ride height?

Thanks!

Nope. I've got Ultralow springs and Koni shocks on my EL with 19" GT-P's and I've been defected for ground clearance 5 times. Lowest point on my car is at about 60mm.

Scraping? Depends. Front tyres I won't run anything wider than a 235/35 as I have 245/35 and I scrape on full lock. You will need to lip the s**t out of your guards. The rears I run 255/30 with the guards lipped to the s**t.

And wow! Do you own that green xr6! That's like my favourite car of all time right now. I wish I owned that so badly! Honestly my favourite, fantastic looking car. :D
