I recently purchased a 17 350, a ton of Anderson carbon products including a front splitter that’s about 2” off the ground. I’m still rubbing on speed bumps slow and at angles. Has anyone installed a hydraulic lift in the front to raise a few inches for entering driveways or speed bumps.if so what product, how much to install, and do you like it. I believe the new C8 has this technology built from factory

I think you’ll have to completely replace the front shocks and a lot of suspension parts to do this.

That would probably Completely change the handling dynamics of the car.

I want to do the same thing so I can lower the car without rubbing so often. Unfortunately there does not seem to be anything that will work with a spring that is not equal diameter top to bottom. That is why lift systems are possible with coil overs. the only other way I've found is to bag the suspension. Neither one of those options is palatable since it means ditching the Magneride and involves a high cost.

Unfortunately this seems like a situation where your modifications have simply made the car unsuitable for how you use it. An airbag suspension is likely your only solution but you then trade off a huge share of the car's performance, which makes the aero mods useless anyway. If it's 100% for the looks, look into bags. If not, ditch the track-only splitter mounting.
