'Sporting appearance and improved road holding' sounds like marketing speak and not engineering speak..
I believe most people lower their cars for aesthetic reasons in order to try to emulate racing cars.. which is fair enough.. benefits can be gained with certain types of suspension set ups.. but not always.. I feel that lowering
a 'passive steer' multilink set up is a gross over simplification of a complex issue..
car manufacturers are in the business of turning metal into money.. engineering/ design features are often incorporated for the purposes of sales.. for example 'splitters, sills, dummy air vents, and spoilers.. which do little but increase the co-efficient of drag and mass/weight..
If 'lowering' floats your boat then do it.. And as Gary says just be aware that there may be negative consequences.. He's not saying don't do it..
He was also accused of 'talking rubbish' which he quite clearly is not.. He was also asked by the accuser to 'elaborate'.. which he has..
