Default 2018 oem sti lip

Iím sure itís been discussed but I couldnít find any info in a search. Can anyone confirm how much ground clearance you lose after install? My driveway pitch is pretty tough and I donít want to purchase if itís going to scrape.

The front lip will decrease the ground clearance by about an inch if I'm not mistaken. If you are at stock ride height I wouldn't be concerned unless you are driving up a mountain of a driveway. You could always take it at an angle as well.

I have it on my '17 at stock height. Only thing I scrap going over larger speed bumps and a driveway pitch are my crap flaps and sometimes the stock side skirts. Best bet is to go over on an angle and slow.

So short of the long, you'll be fine.
