And i bet it had driveline vibrations after it was raised as a balance weight was ripped off. Notice the circle at the rear on the drive shaft!

ive got 17s and superlow kings with pedderes comfort gas, and i have never heard or felt the tailshaft rubbing on the floorpan, but just last week i had my car up on a hoist and noticed a small rub mark on the underside of the floorpan and a ring around the tailshaft where it had rubbed. The rub mark was only about the size of a peanut and had only rubbed enought the take the paint off. Its not illeagally low, and infact i wanted to lower it a little more, but this has really changed my mind.

I only ever have a problem when the car is in First gear at about 4,000rpm.
The tailshaft hits fairly hard. I have a nice groove worn into the underside of the car. Sucks, but its only on really hard launches, etc.

ea's dont have a rear bump-stop.. .so I cant see it being a huge issue that you dont have it.. but if you were hitting it its probably a good indication that the car is just too low....

my car is on superlows and its only hit with two people and a boot full of luggage in the back over large bumps
