I have a question about ground clearance. I just bought a crossover SUV. It doesn't have much ground clearance but will (just barely) make it over an obstruction I need to drive over. Does a vehicle's stated ground clearance take into account the amount the suspension can bounce? That is, I can barely clear the obstruction but it will work if the springiness of the suspension doesn't let the car go below its stated ground clearance. If the springs let it go lower the vehicle will bottom out.
