Lowered cars and Washington State Ferry's

Hey Folks, 


Does anyone have any experience driving on a ferry with a lowered vehicle?  I'm running basically stock suspension on my 2002 but I do have an aftermarket turbo front ait damn.  I can get over speedbumps without any issue, but the approach angle on the ferry's change greatly especially depending on the tide.  I live in Edmonds and have been tempted to cross over many times but have chickened out due to the potential headache factor.  Anyone have any experience / advice on attempting this or should I avoid this at all cost?

 

Thanks!

I have 74 with stock suspension (ride height, stock springs), and front Zender air dam, never had an issue. 

 

Some modern cars have a lower clearance than a stock 02 with an air dam,, and I hear occasionally they have an issue, although the newest class ferry they did modify the upper ramp to lessen or eliminate this.

Thanks Russell - I appreciate your thoughts.  I suppose maybe I just needed someone to give me a confidence boost to give it a try.  I'll report back for those that are curious!
