You may want to check out this thread if you have the track pack: http://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f91/lowering-track-pack-ride-height-even-further-58272/If I where to lower the front of the car maybe a ¼ inch max (measured under the front suspension), what would be the outcome of the alignment? As in how would it be moved?
I assume there would be a bit less camber….yes/no?
What would happen to the toe? What else?....
I was (am) thinking about rising the springs a small amount up front (lowering the car) but I don’t know how this would affect the alignment and I don’t want to go get an alignment right now. If moving it the said amount will mess things up then I won’t mess with it until I go get a new alignment.
Thanks for whatever help.
If you don't there are a few threads about changing the ride height by cutting new grooves in the shock body (I think turbophil may have done this)
EDIT: Found Phil's thread: http://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f91/what-do-you-get-lss-lathe-45291/
If you're adjusting the ride height by moving the top spring perch, you move the spring perch upward to lower the ride height. Changing the ride height has a significant effect on front toe settings, not much on other alignment settings.More exp. folks will advise about alignment changes, but if you want to lower the car's ride ht, you will want to lower the spring base, not raise it. The springs support the car body, etc., so to lower the car, you have to lower the spring location. 1/4 in. will have pretty min. affect on align. settings.
