I got this new mod we are putting together for 2005,the underslung pipes behing the rearend(tail section is done like a dirtworks),the underslung tubes run down hill(to give some clearince between the rearend housing and underslung) my question is what kind of ground clearince should I shoot for?

Thanks

I would set the ride hieghts on all perspective coners then scale the car to get desired % Then were ever they end up is pretty much were they will be if you feel at that point they are to low you may have to modify

jack the left side up to simulate body roll and make sure it dont hit the underslung, if it hits during body roll you will be chasing your tail. make suree your lr arm and linkages are set agressive to check this too , that way if you go to more angles you will know if it hits too.
