Default Front fender/chin spoiler with the most ground clearance?

What is the front facia with the most ground clearance for the 2011+ Mustang GT's? Is the stock front lip thing the highest one? I will scrape mine in my new parking spot after i get lowered, it is rubber so im not too worried but i was wondering if any of the other front spoilers give more ground clearance.

I'm betting stock is the most clearance. I'm lowered 1.5in and have the CDC chin spoiler and haven't touched it on anything. How do you know you'll scrape? Do you scrape already? You know if you take a 45 degree angle into parking lots and over speed bumps, you'll get more clearance and are less likely to scrape. Also, learn where the front of the car is, and stop earlier in parking spots with curbs in the front. It's all about practice, and understanding how to drive a lowered car.

Its a curb/gutter thing that i have to go up and down to park and get out from my condo, i also have to back out straight, usually, as there is a covered parking area right next to mine and it has these pillars preventing me from angling out. I clear it right now by about 1/8th inch or less, it may be a solid scrape of that rubber every entrance and exit after these springs are installed. I have been considering some curb ramps but they are kind of expensive and probably wouldnt be allowed to be there at my condo permanently.
