Front bumber scraping
i have the veilside kit on my car with 16" alloys from Toyota and i believe i have stock springs. so what my qusetion is, is there something i can put under the the front bumber to keep it from scratching real bad. its already down past the paint and is starting to go through the kit frown frown. im thinking like some kind of wheels or something. my dad has little wheels under his vette to keep it from scratching, works great, i wonder if they have them for our cars.

Or just learn to angle the car when taking inclines.

I've got a buddy club front bumper as far as I know there is no bumper lower then it. I've scraped maybe twice in the last 6 months and it was just from me not paying close enough attention. Just take driveways and what not at an angle.

can't you put some kind of rubber under there so it won't scratch and some enough for people can't see it.

i agree with most of the people in this thread about not worrying about it. the bottom of my front bumper is pretty sraped up..as well as most any car that sits low.

but i do NOT recommend getting a carbon fiber splitter. 1. they're not cheap. 2. it won't keep your car from scraping (it'll just scrape the carbon fiber). 3. this really will not affect resale because of it being virtually invisisible (plus its already scratched).

angle IS everything, though. if you don't want to sratch then just take a good angle. if this is impossible and you really are worried about the sraping..park in the street (although i'd worry about this even more)
