I here you! i dont have problems with clearance, but i have a Roush and i was use to scrapping everywhere. I finally mastered the art of getting around speed bumps and steep drive ways. I wish i wouldve beefed up my tranny before i installed the LTs. Iam dreading the day i have to drop it! i know its coming its the only part of the car that hasnt been built aside from a centerforce clutch.On a mostly stock motor, I wouldn't waste the time on either. Longtubes are a pain in the butt. They reduce ground clearance, and make clutch swaps a nightmare. Believe me, i have them on my car and wish i just put shorties on.
