That's "butterfly". Most of the lowered cars you see here are slammed for pictures only. In most cases, for normal driving, we raise it to a drivable height in which the butteryflying goes away. Some drives it lowered but have to really watch out for potholes, manholes, steep driveway entrances, etc.

most cars with independent suspension will "camber" due to lowering a vehicle, my LS had camber when it was stock height

Awesome Carlos! If you don't want that CarPC, let me know ;] LOL.

If you really want to be the man, wire the VSC button on your dash to a short cut on the carPC that takes you to a direct link to VSC
