Q: How low can my truck legally be like how high off the ground?

asked by on

I want to slam my s10 but how low is to low light whats the minimum amount off the ground

I have never heard of a legal limit for how low a vehicle can be. I would not recommend going below 6 inches for the lowest part of the suspension or you will not be able to go over a speed bumps or get into some parking lots or driveways if you go much lower than this.
