Zenn Body Kit Too Low?

Hey Guys, I have a dilemma. I have always wanted to get the SS front bumper for my LS but I could never find one that wasnt outragous in price. I also agree that they look the best but I have been looking at the zenn body kit for my car since its conservative. My biggest issue is that I am already lowered on sportlines. And i also go to college in a area with bad roads and limited plowing for the winter. So will this kit really limit the driving I can do in the winter? Is the front bumper any lower than the ss front bumper? I dont want to be plowing snow and stuff with my bumper. I wish someone who had this kit could measure how much space they had from the bottom of the bumper to the pavement so I knew what I was getting into. Any suggestions wwill help thanks

Any body kit will be lower than factory. If the roads where you will be going to school are as bad as you sat, then you may have a problem without a kit. I have an issue getting into some parking lots with my kit and I am at normal height. When I visit my inlaws, I have to avoid some areas of their town as I cannot drive those roads without damage to my kit.

Every state has messed up roads

check out morad auto on eBay. They have the front and rear ss bumpers with lips for 600 plus shipping. Very good deal. And the side skirts for 80 each. They can work something out with you if you buy the whole package

Why bother with a kit if you have to always worry about where you drive? It doesnt make any sense.

My car is only 5 inches from the ground to the front bumper and I don't scrape

I have this kit, It's NOT installed yet but i did put it up to the car and it will sit low. I'm guessing about the same as hailcesar, maybe just a tad lower.

The Buddy Club2 Body kit i think is the cleanest, right up there with RK sports body kit and there lip kit.
