I go in and outta 50-75 driveways a week for my business, and thats the main reason I can never get a kit.

I even have high profile Cooper 50s to provide me another valuable inch or so and I still get the dreaded scraaaaaaaaaaapeage on occasion

It's weird, but from the angle of your pics, it almost looks like your back end sits significantly higher than the front. It just seems like the front bumper is slanted downwards.

I have TRD coilovers with the Kaminari kit and I have a HELL of a time with drive ways and entrances. I have to go in with about a 75-80 degree angle, and even then it's close. I've just given up on parking in driveways.

My driveway is ok...but everywhere else isn't. You guys with kits and 2" or more drop...you must drive on an airport runway to not scrape. I have a vizage kit on stock rollers and i bottom out once a week...twice if i drive to the same store twice. I'm good with speedbumps...but it's always pulling outta joints. This is the reason I can't drop either...my kit is already scratched to shit on the bottom.

I'm a little worried, now. I just got my Tein S-Techs in the mail today. I've got no kit but I'm still on the stock 15's.

Umm.. you guys are scaring me.
I just dropped the car with eibach prokit springs, and the car goes into the shop to have my kaminari kit put on tomorrow.

I've never driven a low car before, the only advice I got from my brother was "watch 3 feet in front of you, and take curbs on an angle" rolleyes helpful.

I hope I don't mess up the kit the first day out of the shop...

I have TRD lowering springs and I really want a Kaminari Kit. I am planning on getting 17's too, so It won't be too low will it? Can anybody tell me how much lower the Kaminari Kit is than the stock without action package?

Maybe, but not that bad. My old 00 GT with stock 15" and WW Kit was bottoming out on most places. Tons of scrapes when I look underneath the car.
