Well, the way the front suspension works, is when you lower it, the beam along with the spindle rotates on its axis and doing so, is recessed more into the wheel well. I can snap a pic later on and show you what I'm talking about, but the front wheels sit in about 3/4 inch further than the rears do.

I think it will look good with the newer bumper. Something like this:

Huh? The headlights? Yes, they are clear, but look smoked so in order to replicate the look of those, I would have to throw a very light coat of niteshades on the fog lights so they look smoked along with the rest of the lights.
