    Default Its going to be close.......

    I want to fit new springs but the driveway has a rise in it as I go over the kerb.

    I estimate I've got only about 50mm before it scrapes with only me in it.



    so, is it worth doing if I only drop it by 30/35mm?

    would I still feel a benefit?

    cheers if you can offer advice.

    Alternatively raise the start of your drive to compensate for the raise in the path? 20 - 30mm will do? Sorted!

    If its going to rub anywhere it will be the front end when your drive straight in, the front lip usually gets it. I have to reverse into my driveway as theres more clearance at the back and no rubbing
