Too low for speed bumps?

I was wondering if I drop my TSX about 1 to 1.5 inches, will i still be able to clear speed bumps?

Could of just pulled up to a speedbump and stuck a ruler at the end of your bumper to see how low it would be

besides lansdown, you should be fine. But also depends on your wheel and tire as well. If you got some meaty tires, you'll have even more clearance

Don't see what the big deal with Lansdowne is. Just go around them instead of crab walking. Even when I had maybe 2-3" or so of clearance I still made it over the bumps fine if I took it slow. That was on my old 240 though, now on my new car the frame rails get polished pretty easily lulz
