I had to buy the long Race Ramps to lessen the angle so my splitter didn't hit. You and I have the same exhaust, so you need to watch that as well.

Pete is right on with securing it using the control arms. Do not try and tie it down with the suspension as some have mentioned on this site. I loop my rachet tie-downs around the rear LCA and the front LCA. The car doesn't slide on long trips. The wheel tie-down would work well if the trailer is equipped to use them.

Here's my setup.
Agreed on the suspension tie down... a bouncing car on the trailer allows for the tie downs to be shock loaded on and off as rough roads are encountered.... Tie to LCA's or use tire webs if the trailer is so equipped...

Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

If you can turn, you ain't going fast enough...
