drop springs and cut outs`

I just installed some qtp low profile cut outs and now i'm planning on dropping the car an inch (using eibach) with the gfx kit already installed. what's the consensus? drop it or don't.

my concern is with the cut outs installed i would have clearance problems. i might be rubbing that bottom at every bank.

I have seen one 2010 dropped with GFX. I don't think you will have any problem with clearance for cut outs or headers...Instead, he is very close to scraping the hell out of his GFX at every speed bump. This car is relatively close with a drop... but even a one inch drop with another 1/2-1" of GFX is tight...

Mine has no GFX but is dropped one inch with Eibach as well and I have no problems with anything under carriage (I have LTs no cutouts). Again, only concern to me would be the GFX themselves. Those would look pretty nasty if they were given a good sanding.

I have the factory GFX, lowered, and have low pro cut-outs. Never scrape on anything
