Bottomed out, need help

Long story short I went into a dip going pretty fast and bottomed out, what I heart sounded like metal scraping badly but once I got home I checked everything under neath the car like headers cats and all that but nothing seems damaged in any way? Cars running fine nothing wrong with it. I am lowered with h&r springs 1" but that's about it. So I was wondering should I just call it a day and not worry about it to much or is there anything else I should look for? I mean the cars ride quality seems the same, maybe a bit more rough but that's probably just in my head.

Thanks again

If nothing is off right now only time will tell if something is off.

You could always go to a good alignment shop for a quick inspection of the suspension and alignment check.

H&R springs are overly soft garbage but I doubt you damaged anything. Scraping happens.

I don't know why I said h&r I actually have hotckis and they are very good but I'm hoping like you said that nothing happened and just wait it out. Thanks for the reply!

Are you using the original struts? My car has 66,000 on it and I'm about to replace the springs with HOTCHKIS and the struts with KONI. My car starts bobbing as I cruise down the highway, so I know the struts are bad. I've read that the HOTCHKIS springs have a great ride, compared to most....
