questions about lowering the suspension
Yeah, i've seen lowering kits that lower the front and back end of the car equally. I've also seen where the front was lower than the back, and the back lower than the front. What's the point of having one end lower than the other? Is there some kind of performance aspect that i should take into consideration before i get it? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

lower front = more weight on the front = more grip on front wheels = less understeer.

lower back is vice versa
