Just one point more related to the practical side of lower the car.
A number of years ago I had some idiot following way too close to me in a car much lower than mine on the freeway at around 65 mph (the legal limit here) or so.

Ahead was a truck carrying rubbish from a building site I guess. Doors , window frames , sheet rock for interior panelling, bent guttering etc.

The inevitable happened and two brick concreted together fell of the back and landed on the roadway.
My car just went over the top and no problem.
The car following smacked right into them and there was some considerable damage done.
Anecdotal I know but worth keeping in mind we do need to live in the real world out there.
