BC2 is a low kit to begin with. If your drop is a full 2" your going to be real close to the ground.

Most likely you will scrape with BC2.

Ya you'll most likely scape if you hit a pot hole or if you are going up a drive way. I'd recomend getting some other type of springs. Tein H-Techs or S-techs

Install the kit yourself, then you can save some money and put it towards a new set of springs

i have the BC2 kit with tanabe 2" drop which is more like a 2.5 inch all around, and it's real low. I"m on the stock 15" gt rims also. I'm very careful when i drive so i don't even scrape. I never scraped before, but it's just the way i drive..i always go at an angle really slow...and things i know i can't make over, i just don't mess with it. Hope that helps.

I got the regular buddyclub kit and I am also 2" in the front. Not a big problem if your careful when you drive... Unlike my girlfriend who has hit a dead animal in the road at least three times and split the kit in half causing me to have to repair it... but we won't get into all that... Anyways... Like I was saying, just know your limitations and U will B just fine. Oh and just a few quick tips, alwayz reverse into a parking spot to avoid hitting the curb, when going over speed bumps get as parallel to it as possible to prevent the lower end of the lip from scraping, same with driveway dips and high spots. OH AND DON'T FORGET... If you don't know how to change your own oil, U better learn that shyt cause not many shops can get you car up on the lift anymore. Good Luck Man thumbsup
