hey, I am wanting to put the Cobra R front bumper (one piece, not the add on or bolt on piece) on my 01' Cobra but I also want to lower the car. does anyone know if you lower the car with the splitter on, will you have enough ground clearance or what is the ground clearance? :doubt:

I don't know about the 1 piece, but I had the ford R splitter on my '01 and originally my car had about 2-2.5" drop, and I only had no more than 4" of clearance. I had to raise my car up to about a 1.5" drop. Luckily I had coilovers so it wasn't that hard. But you are going to have to be careful. Especially when it comes to steep driveways and speed bumps. I couldn't even get into my driveway to lower my car. I had to go to my mother-in-laws house to do it.

Hope it helps

with the 1 1/2 inch drop and the splitter on there you should have right at about a coke can of clearance. Ive seen pictures of that exact setup a while back and the can was in front of it and was dead on.

I know that the Cobra R bumper cover sits up higher than the splitter so that will help on the ground clearance. The only place that I can find a Cobra R bumper cover is at the Ford dealership and they are asking $409. does anyone know of another place that might have this peice?

I know cervini's sells a one peice cover, but they are rather spendy also. You might check on ebay.

I jsut got on for my 95 and im going to pick it up tomorrow form the body shop if you would like I can send you photos of it, when they are done so you can see how it came out. I got it from abcexclusive. We had to do some work to it to make it fit. I will know for sure tomorrow how much I like it. Hope this helps and I will also let you know how much room there is from the ground to the bottom of the bumper.
