Little extra? Lowered you already will have more than enough, throw the balt arms on there and it would probably surpass the reasonable adjustability, let alone if you are knowledgable in suspesnion dynamics, this would be a very bad idea in terms of the geometry angles of the suspension components.

What advantages do the GMPP Knuckles give?

If I get used to envying others those parts of myself that I am proud of will recede from me.

Thats a good question, I guess I'll find out. The only thing I have been able to establish is they are stronger, other than that I don't know. I'll be taking side by side pics tomorrow if they come in.

Are you sure Eco?

-1 1/2 Degrees is a very noticable amount of negative camber. Given the low camber gain of a Mcpherson strut I'd be very surprised if a 1" drop alone would give you that. You would also burn up the inside edge of the tire in very short order on the street.

They should be a lot stronger and able to handle running over race track curbs and a little beating and banging.

That's because you're all blue and furry.

I tend to have more wear on the outside edge....

I've peeled the inner tread off of two sets of tires already. Like to the point where the cords are showing on the inner edge, but there's plenty of tread on the outer edge, lol.

Sorry I thought you were just jacking....

Toe out or too much negative camber. Or both.

I thought the track might have something to do with it, too. I was squealing the tires through every turn, lol. I'm gonna get it aligned this week, since I just got tires on her on Thursday. Gotta get the bwoody rear bar on.
