Differs from every car but you should be right provided your exhaust rubber mounts aren't shot. The exhaust is usually the lowest point of the car..

I have only got Lows on my EL and some parts underneath my car a Coke can not fit and other parts it would. I still have issues with certain angled driveways and Speedhumps. The Cat usually gets the full brunt of it. Just friggin yesterday I was cleaning dirt and grass from it after my EL had a full load of shopping in the boot and 2 passengers and she scraped a bit coming back in to my driveway. Pisses me off cause I had to replace the Cat not so long ago. I wouldn't like to think about all the hassles that would happen if I ever put Superlows on it, yikes

You will fine the cat is the lowest point. It has to be 100mm of the grand with 4 adult passengers and a full petrol tank!
