Im planning on dropping my car pretty soon but my dango driveway is kinda steep.. is there anyway to go about this? should i re-cement my driveway? or just have a piece of wood there to lay when i need to drive up and down? ahHHH

coming to your driveway at an angle

i agree.. the angle doesn't have to be like huge... just enough so you can put one rear wheel down at a time...

ok let's put it this way...
i also have a 2k Lexus Es 300.. and the lip scrapes occasionally on that car. and it's stock height.

get a bag of cement and build little 1" mounds in the crease where the wheels rest, should give you enough of a lift so you don't scrape.

get hydrolics and when you get to the drive way just lift the car up and when your cruising you can lower it by just a flip of a switch

Are you talking about backing into your driveway? Typically backing in is much easier than going front-end-in-first.

Just ask your friends to carry the Si over the driveway for you.

How about parking in reverse? doesnt your back have more clearence then your front? so just reverse it in there. Just a thought

Don't park on the streets. Sometime theres alot of haters. I live in a nice area too. when my brother parked his car in the streets. someone came with a M80 throw it under my brother celica. The alarm went off like crazy. Then a week later someone stole my neighbor radio lcd screen subwoofer amp everything. So u don't really know whats gonna happen to ur car at night when ur sleeping. So i say don't leave it in the streets. I really do live in a good neighborhood.
