    Not that im aware of, Just take it slow and or take it on a angle, you just need to learn your car and go from there.

    no skid guard. your car is to low, even if you got one it would prolly be destroyed. only real bad dips afr the worst. i always take them slow and at an angle. this town is full of b/s roads...

    My air dam scrapes every time I pull out/into my driveway - been doing it for years. Keep wondering when it'll finally wear down enough to stop. LOL

    do you approach the driveway straight on? try approaching it at an angle so that the tire is the first thing to make contact with the driveway, your front shouldn't scrape unless the driveway is really steep

    another thing to add is to go slow, not with speed, the suspention and weight transfer can be make it scrape,

    like for my job there is this steep alley to go threw, i f going at 5 mph+ it will scrape, but just creeping it wont

    Yeah tried that - doesn't really scrape that bad, just drags a little. Driveway is pretty steep, live at the very end of the street (court) and the road is at it's lowest point right at my driveway for the storm drain within a few inches on one side. Think I'm making some progress though, if I've been running on the highway at 90+ air temps sometimes pulling in really slow it won't scrape, guessing because of increased tire pressure. Guess I could back in too and see if the front still scrapes, sounds silly but never tried it, just assumed it would.
