Maybe if you posted in the correct forum you would get more help.

No matter how low you drop your car, your Hiper is going to scrape. I know I don't have the Hiper, but from what I've seen/heard, it even scrapes at stock height.

yeah, i scraped my blitz last night at stock hight with 2 skinny people in the back. It sounded really bad, but when i looked at it, it wasn't a big deal. You're just going to have to face the fact that your gonna scrape it occasionally. After the first couple it probably won't bother you as much :D .

Next week i'm going to put on some Tein S-techs, then i will have to be extra careful.

this is what i heard...people put on the hiper on stock height, then are scared to drop it because it scrapes with people in the back; but from what i hear, the teins dont compress as much so the springs wont be THAT low...but its still lower... :-?

I have the HT springs with Hiper, I only scrap when I have ppl in the back and im not extremely careful. Otherwise, just remember to take steep inclines at an angle and you will be fine. The drop from the Tein springs isnt that much so it shouldnt affect it tremendously. Its worth the sleek look in my opinion. Go for iT!

I have a Hiper and I'm dropping the car 1 inch with eibach's. Solution to me is simple, if you scrape, dont take passengers in the back seat...They'll slow you down anyways :D

geez, i must be crazy...
i am primarliy only using hks as i tune my car next year, and already have plans to install hiper and hks springs (2 inch drop).

it will look clean as hell, with about a one finger gap all around, and i am depending on the springs to have a high enough compression ratio to prevent the car from bottoming out.

if it all works, the car will glide right along just a few inches from the ground... good thing i live in la and not bfe middle-america somewhere: nothing but smooth paved road for miles.

You will definately scrape. I scraped a few times with my hiper at stock height. But I guess it doesn't really matter since no one is really going to see the damage done to your exhaust.
