well, my set of hooker super comps , are looking like they will be IMPOSSIBLE to put on , bc, il hit anything in the road, esp a speedbump if i choose to go over one ... so, im trying to sell them off ... and, i am thinking of buying a set of TRI=Y's, bc you get the benefit of longer tubes, for a good price... im wondering about ground clearance with them though, in the front i run 205/50 R15 tires, and i have eibach lower springs so it sits low, the wheel is inside the wheel well basically. ive heard TRI-Y dont hang too low.. so, would a set of them be good for my car? i like the good pricing on them alot.

Yeah, Tri-Y's fit up there nice and tight. With a small set of mufflers, say Deltaflow 40's, the entire exhaust tucks up with nothing hanging down. That's what I'm running.

I use Hooker Comps (not super comps) on my 65 and they don't hang too low on my car, even with the small front tires (same size as yours). See it here, in the attached photo. Take a look at the complete 3" exhaust system here if you like http://jmichael.info/SHELBY

I have the tri-y's and they don't hang any lower than the stock set-up. Fitment was excellent and no leaks to speak of since installing them 3,000 miles ago. If you are running power steering you may find that in addition to the power steering ram lowering bracket you will also need to add a spacer to lower it even further to make sure you don't connect with the headers or cook it :)
