I agree with wishbones Andy, but drop links can't possibly affect the suspension geometry as theyre attached by balljoints at both ends; the only load that the droplink can carry is axial along it's length. They will pull a worn wishbone bush out of shape but if they're worn they will knock, not affect the suspension geometry.
My left rear is now a racing slick on the inner edge due to worn bushes. I will be completely re-building front and back at the end of the month; powder coat all links; Koni SRT; Eibach (20mm lower) springs; Powerflex in all bushes; new bump stops; new droplinks; new front strut top bearings; braided hoses; etc. The bill for parts is well over £1000 now (and still a few bits on the shopping list!) but I'll save another £1000 on labour, and get much satisfaction, by doing it myself.
