I don't think I've seen anyone post this article before:

It doesn't sound very good. (Woe if you're lowered, like some of you are.)

Wow! That's another reason why I carry a jack and a full-sized (speed rated too) spare.

Lucky we have one tow company that we always use and they are great with lowered vettes, 911's etc. They even recently did a perfect job on a slammed z06 with a carbon front lip. I just some guys just hate there job or are mainly repo guys.

Thanks for this article. No one cares about your car like you do and certainly not a bozo on a tow truck whose personal vehicle is a rusted 79 Dodge pick-up truck.

Potholes create a whole new dynamic to the driving experience as do low ride heights and low pro tires. I don't have a V but do have a Corvette Z06 and I lowered it and inch. I can feel your pain!
