Driveways In Port Macquarie NSW SUCK !

last weekend went to Port Macquaire NSW for a few days, almost every driveway there has to be taken on a wild angle if your car isnt as high as a 4WD. i was leaving the motel we stayed at, exiting their driveway on a wild angle and my flippin car near bellyed up. and my car is basically std XR exept the rear been lower 1.5cm ! i was paranoid at any sound i heard after that till i check underneath the car and was realeved it was all OK. crazy town, ok i shut up now !

i was in the suburbs near sydney early this year, and a few of the drive ways i went up i scraped the rear of my car on... my EF has its stock ride height, and there was NOTHING in the back.
then there was the other day back in melbourne turning into a maccas carpark, full load of ppl, LPG tank full, my car scraped VERY badly... i need stiffer springs :D
