OEM sides vs Mugen sides..Need specs!!!! Will I scrape?!

Hey everyone. I have done my fair share of searching and don't know anyone with a lude that I can do the measurements and see the differences in size...but my question is...I am lowered about 1.8 in the front and 1.5 in the rear....I am looking to buy either Mugen replica sides or OEM sides and need to know if I will be scraping coming the driveway or over any speed bumps...

If anyone has the specs on these two plEaSE let me know! or if you have personal experience feel free to post! thanks all! :D

Here is my ride height currently.....

Honestly, you're not that low where it should be a problem as long as you are careful.

I've never had to worry about my skirts... it's always the front lip.

Re: OEM sides vs Mugen sides..Need specs!!!! Will I scrape?!

yea man just be careful. I messed my left skirt up last year on a path that was tight and had double curbs and i cut it a little too tight. Fiber glass is a B@#$ to patch and sand since it just shatters. But if your not stupid like me you will be fine. If i go over speed bumps too fast my exhaust will bottom out before my sides do. But i do go over them at like .1 mph.

Re: OEM sides vs Mugen sides..Need specs!!!! Will I scrape?!

What's up man?!!

Looks like you'll be good.. Just take steep hills at an angle.. I've never really been close to scrapping my side skirts and I think our cars are pretty close.. I just try to protect my front lip and it takes care of my sides.. I have scrapped the rear but that because my buddies driveway is way step and I have to back down it then turn real sharp.

U should be good with oem sides.. Not to sure about the mugen ones but from what I've seen there not really any lower than oem

Car is still looking good man!!

Re: OEM sides vs Mugen sides..Need specs!!!! Will I scrape?!

I went from OEM skirts mugen and I think they are a little lower. I'm lowed on GC and konis and I scrap the sideskirts sometime on speedbumps.... You should be good though don't worry about it.

you won't have to worry about scraping them going up driveways, that's physically impossible. you should be bad over speedbumps either unless you're like 3.5" slammed. usually your exhaust/another chassis part will hit way before your skirts

thanks dude, yea I am not too fond of fiber glass on the sides. I could deal with the rear, but sides are iffy :/

I am just worried cause when I pull into mine currently i have about 2-3 inches of clearance for my side skirts. driveways here in NC have a pretty steep entry. they arent like level with the ground, they are over 2 feet in incline :( ugh. I just need to do some measurements to make sure. it would suck to get them painted, pull in and hear scraaaappppeee lol

you guys are the $hiznit. Thank you all so much for your responses!!!!
