I scrape the bottom of my front bumper regularly. Speed bumps (even slow), driveways, potholes. It gets irritating and is taking a toll on the bottom of my bumper.

Car is a 99 C70, new struts, original springs. Is replacing with a fresh stock set of OEM springs the way to go? Not looking to change the ride particularly.

Anyone dealt with this issue?

Sidenote. I found an 04 C70 in a local junkyard and have been having a great time taking just what I need. Nice to find a private cheap source of parts.

It’s the c70 bumper most likely they sit lower.

My C70 is actually lowered and I almost never scrape the bumper. I'd start with springs. Grab the 04 springs and see what's up.

Thanks! I will grab the strut packs from that car. The guy wants to keep the engine largely intact. Are there any sought after parts you'd suggest I collect while I'm there - drivers bumper side front end collision.

Window regulators are very expensive, if they work in the donor car they're worth grabbing if he'll let them go cheap.

Window Regulators it is. I need to pull the locking mechanism from the donor car passenger side door anyway

I suppose I should take some wood and a saw to prop up the windows once I remove?
I am wanting the convertible top to this car - it's in nice shape and mine is wearing.

Since I replaced the heater core, rotors & pads, struts & shocks, tires, engine mounts, vvt soleniod, and most of all the front seats (seat power controls work well, I didn't bother with the seat heaters or seat memory) this car passed inspection and is just a pleasure to drive.
