Goin on the Ferry...

Whats it like for us guys with slammed cars getting on and off the ferry? I've been before when its pretty steep should I try and time my ferry trip with a certain tide to make sure the ramps are flat or does it really matter?

Berz out.

Take up both lanes and hit it on an angle. Also the lower deck is less harsh of an angle.


This thread comes up every few months... maybe it should just be stickied

The higher the tide the less steep it will be.
My old roomate and I used to go back and forth all the time in his tiburon that would drag over speedbumps, if he can do it i'm sure you can too

overheights get priority, but its pretty bloody rare the entire lower deck is full of them, and even then theres room for a car or two to squeeze on

I dont see the major problem with loading the ferry, I know my stuff is lower than 90% of you guys, and I load just fine, no matter what ferry I catch.....But I also dont have mufflers that hang 6" below my frame rails.

whats "proper" suspension ? would that be some monroe shocks and tien springs ? or some eibachs and kyb/tokico's ?

my car is slammed, and I barely make it. bit of scraping, use the lower deck, if you have the option of adjustable coilovers like me, you can use the raise the car for the ferry option. I don't but I know a couple guys that do.
