I just got my spacers installed. They make the stance perfect.

What I find interesting, since vehicles are so design-centric now, is that the rear not simply having a larger wheel well to compensate for the fronts due to aesthetics seems like an oversight.
I mean beauty in the eye of the beholder and all that.
