    They alter caster angle and dynamic camber with it, and they shift the task of controlling nose attitude from the chassis to the suspension.

    Correct. Simply put your car follows the road better and allows you to go into corners a little harder.

    I have the Whiteline ALK Comfort version and it was a very nice upgrade. Do that with steering rack bushings and you will have a tighter feel and a more controlled ride.

    Also, if you do an ALK it will change your class for Autocross or SCCA, I believe.

    well from a physical stand point the only thing that changes is the transverse suspension bushing (the lower rear front arm bushing) get repositioned lower. this means that the front of the arm stays the same and the rear drops increasing the angle. while doing this it allows the front tires to do their job of sticking to the road... soooooo... i plan on simply taking the transverse bushing off, sticking some 1/2 aluminum spacers under it and bolting it back in place. repositioning the bushing down about the same as every other anti-lift kit on the market for what will be free for me.
