hey you're welcome! yeah when you begin to look at the chassis engineering in a suspension then you'll see all these technical terms that are involved. Not to be sounding boring, but when you realize the load stresses you're introducing by going outside the design specs (such as stance) then you can see how it's gonna cost more $$$ down the road.
I know I could possibly get people who want to defend my view on it. With them saying "oh no you're wrong, that never happened to me".. Give it time, it will.. Can't re-write the laws of physics.
Another thing to think about with stance.. Everything being flush/lowered. Then think of where is the tire/wheel supposed to go when you hit bumps? That's why there's always a bit of overhand in the wheel well on any production car. Tire has to move upward if it hits a bump, called wheel travel.
Now lowering can be done well, nothing wrong with it, as long as the suspension is designed to take it.. anyway, Im just kinda repeating what I said earlier. Definitely do some digging online and learn about the angles involved in a suspension then you can see for yourself how stance is just show not performance.
