I have around a 2" drop with 215 40 17" tires but no kit. I have a piece of unerbody plastic that sometimes hangs down from under the valence on the bumper about an inch or two. I always hear it scrapping over dips, bumps, and expansion joints on the highway when it gets lose. I don't know if that helps any.

lets do the math, 2 inch drop, the kit is prolly about an inch or 2 so about 4 inches of a drop, go look at ur car and see what 4 inches from the bottom would look like, im pretty sure you'll be fine

you'll probably be around 5" . definetely not high enough to go over speed bumps & steep inclines. if you really want the buddy club kit, i would wait until you get it installed & then see how much you can drop it before you can't go over a speed bump.
