Wow what downpipe? Should not be that low. Maybe it is just rocked down and forward around the turbo.

That sounds like a problem I wouldn't mind having. What spring/shock combo do you use?

Nick's six point subframe brace makes a good 'skidpan' for the underside. Sounds like you are utterly 'slammed' though - what springs have done this?
