Default Lowered w/ Longtubes

Hey everyone.I am thinking about lowering my car, but i'm not sure how low to go.I have long tubes and I really dont want to mess them up by bottoming out.I'd really like to get sportlines but i think that will be to low.Just wondering what springs other guys with l/t' have and how often you scrap? Thanks

pro kit, or any lowering equivalent is what i would go with. i think sportlines would be too low. i have them and I scrape with the stock midpipe all the time, so you def. will sometimes with longtubes

sportlines do look awesome though, IMO

sportlines and BBK LTs here, you just have to be extra careful and go over any large bumps in the road at an angle.
