Car on coilovers is it worth shortening the drop links?

    As above got around 60mm drop all round is it worth taking 60mm off the drop links to compensate, as the roll bars will be working in a different position...no issues just wondered..:think:

    I believe that the S3/LCR/R32 from suspension setup lends itself quite well to a drop unlike the A3/LC/Golf and will cause no issues for the ARB in its new position. Having said this, since dropping mine I am pretty sure that it has taken its toll on the stock ARB bushes and they are now creaking, time for bigger ARB and polybushes I think. I can't say whether this is a coincidence as the bushes are getting on a little anyway.

    The only problem with lowing a car the wish bones work at a different angle and throws the roll centre out
