So what's wrong here?
Ok, I got my new rims a few weeks ago, and havn't gotten an alignment yet, but I plan on doing it today. Anyways, since I have upgraded with the new wheels, I noticed that I tend to bottom out a lot, especially on the highway at high rates of speed when I hit a little dip. This never used to happen to me. I looked under the car, and the metal bar in between both of the underbody plastics is the one doing all of the scraping.
I even removed the plastics to make sure that it was the metal bar, and it is. I'm not sure what the metal bar is called, but I believe that it could be the tranny mount, or it could just be the bar that is hooked up to the towing hook.
Anyways, the problem is that the car dips down to the ground too much when traveling at high rates of speed, and even sometimes when going slower, and the car has the factory kit on it, along with the factory springs, I didn't have it lowered.
Should an alignment fix the problem, or should I just wait another week, and buy some new lowering springs, and then have them installed when I get the alignment?
Are the springs the culprit, or is it another part of the suspension?
