    Default mudflaps hitting speedbumps

    lowered the car on eibachs and b4 shocks now i have the prob of mudflaps hitting speedbumps, sounds worse inside the csr, i had the aftermarket flaps fitted before i got the car lowered, anybody else had this prob, scared the crap out of me the first time going over a speedbump, i thought the sump was gone.

    I have the same problem, My LCR splitter hits the big ones first then the mudflaps, i find if you hit speedbumps at an angle they dont catch as much....

    I have the same problem with mine, the backs were that bad that it ******ed the bumper, mind you I did fit them with only 55mm clearance. The front scrap now and again on speed humps and if I turn sharply.

    Would the obvious solution be to just take the mudflaps off?
