very little.
they don't really sit lower then the car.
just fill out the lower sections to make it appear so.

they do however stick out further front/back then the stock bars, so gutters etc are more of a b**ch.

the front skirt sits a fair bit lower than the standard bar, its ok on lows, but on superlow springs you will find it a pain in the a***... but, it will look good! it depends on how much you hate speed humps and driveways... apart fron the front the rest of the kit wont cause you any dramas...
