Default scraping

my mom has an '05 GT that is stock aside from the Cervinis Eleanor kit, with side exhaust, rear window louvers and black stripes. She has been complaining of the car scraping on some of these horrible pocono roads. is there anything she can do to the suspension to make the car roll less into turns and avoid scrape in areas where the road dips... she does not want to lower the car

Is it the exhaust clamps (on the tips) thats scraping? I have that problem also.But from speed bumps.If its from body roll then she might try some beefier sway bars.Check out some of the sponsors here for brands and pricing.

yeah, its the clamps, and sometimes they do scrape on turns, but mostly its due to these crappy PA roads.

I forgot I posted this post, so I finally remembered when my mom asked what you guys said
