Post Car Wash and lowered cars

Hi all,
This may be a dumb question but, I live in New York and the winters here are bad because of the amount of road salt they use. Sometimes in the winter I would go through a car wash to get rid of the road salt but since I lowered my present car I can't go into a car wash anymore. I was wondering if a lowered Impreza will go through a car wash without hitting bottom. Has anyone with a lowered Impreza try going through a car wash.
I normally wash my cars by hand but its hard to do that without a garage when it 20 degrees.

Most of us that have lowered our RSs have kept it to a minimal. 3/4-1 1/2" drop. Mine isn't really that noticeable so the Imprezas should be able to get into the car wash. Besides if you did scrape you have 4 wheels to pull you into the car wash. Glad here that most car washes aren't hard to go into because once my s10 gets out of the body shop the frame should almost touch the ground.
