I found an old pic and compared to one I took yesterday. I cranked the exposure way up in Photoshop and turned down the contrast so you can see the fender gaps easier.

Now I can see the difference. I would guess inch and a half.

I think it looks tilted because of the angle I took the photos. From looking at the car, everything looks fine. But I'm getting an alignment anyway so if anything is off, it will be adjusted.

So far, I'm very happy with the new look.
Looks really great. Very noticable to me since I have seen my fair share of stock GPs. Nice yet not over done.

Hrm... Read the title as Slammed and was looking for something tucking some rims.

While this is not tucking, it does look 100 times better than before and I think it makes the car even with the stock rims. As stated before, some 17"-18" rims and you'll be set.

That looks real good. Tell us how much of an improvement on grip you have after they settle. Will prolly be done to my car later this year. The lower to the ground the better ( within reason). Makes me feel safer knowing I have better grip and am more "connected" to the road.
