It seems from searching most (aftermarket) downpipes rub the heat shield in one way or another. Currently I have less then a finger gap between the downpipe (2.5" apr) and the lower subframe/steering rack.
How bad will rubbing/clearence be with H&R OE drop ~.5-.75 lower, if any worse.

Re: Minor drop + dp rubbing (Galactic02)

Are you asking if lowering the suspension will put the subframe and steering rack closer to the downpipe? They are bolted to the chassis of the car and don't move with the springs. If the clearance issue you have is with a control arm or tie rod, then yes is will have an effect.
