    I am not an expert but from my experience, (I have spacers in my Swift).

    All mechanics suggest to not get spacers as they may do some damage to the body.

    What that damage is exactly I have yet to find out.

    They suggest to get better shocks (raised shocks) instead of getting spacers.


    Hope this helps.

    ground clearance is good and fine ..... and it is supposed to go down with heavy load

    better check if springs or shocks are working fine

    any thing like spacers ....or raised shocks may help you get good ground clearance but stability will be effected and tyre lock up will happen more

    best you can do is get stiff susp setup then this current soft susp

    If a corolla cannot clear a speed breaker, it's time to clear the speed breaker!

    I really hate these kinds of stupid car breakers. A small bump will be equally effective. Local authorities should have some rule one the size of the speed breakers and standardize them. For you, if the scraping is only occasional when you're with full load, perhaps consider crossing it at an angle rather than ruining your ride with additional lifting.
