That why I dont want coilovers, a few of my mates have them and it kinda a pain in the ass for them going in and out of a few places....where as my jeep no problems.....plus I dont want to be pr*cking about with coilovers when I am carrying people e.t.c...

Coilovers are grand as long you set them up right the first time. I thought mine was terrible until I took off the rear under body brace and now it never scrapes.
