True, but the car needs the correct stance, a slight rake from the back to the front, and not 4x4 tire clearance.

Well my car is lowered by 2" all around with a nice looking stance. It has a very slight rake, same as before using a level between the wheel wells. Used reverse eye grab a traks and cut one full coil from the fronts. Time to drive and settle out, then re-measure the angles.
