Default Sky Ground clearance - raise??


In need to take my Sky on the auto train. Sky ground clearance is 3.6 inches, but the auto train requires at least 4 inches. I will need to drive the car about 300 miles to the auto train and about 200 miles when I get the car off the auto train. What can I due as either a temporary measure or a perminent change to effect the raise in ground clearance to just over 4 inches? I appreciate your suggestions.

Plastic air dam in front of front wheels sticks down quite a bit. It is only 3+ inches from ground. It may bend enough to get buy, but i'm not taking the chance. I removed the air dam - only 2 bolts. I may or may not put it back on the car.

So if the SKY came with an air-dam on it, tell us why do you think it would be a good idea to leave it off?

After you're done shipping the car you should put the air damn back on. It plays an important role in keeping the engine cool.
