 I stand by my statement of may need more adjustment range. To include
factory adjustment range or either method being discussed for increasing that
range. Given the age of the T44 chassis I think it can be safely assumed that
they are not all perfect. Accidents and hard use can cause enough of a change
in the strut towers to be a factor.

 As far as lowering the car sacrificing handling for cosmetics, I'm sure
there are several T44 owners that would be more than happy to show you the
error in that theory, myself included.
