Subframe connectors hitting ground

I put JLs rear subframe connectors on my lowered 95 Mark VIII a few weeks ago. They really do tighten up the rear of the car, but I lost a ton of clearance underneath and grind at most fast-food entrances. Part of the problem is that I do not have the bolt heads facing down, but up, so that the extra bolt threads are facing down and reducing clearance. Even with the bolts in the correctly, I'd guess that I'd lost over an inch of ground clearance. Has anybody else had this problems on there cars. My car is lowered 1.5-2". Thanks!

It all depends on the car itself,and how much it's lowered.These cars don't have alot of ground clearance-so when you start whittling away at it by lowering-it can make issues with dragging the undercarriage.One thing will help protect the fuel tank,and the driveline.
