Tony, it was a loaded question. My point was corner balancing with a dual adjustable setup is easier/more effective than changing preloads to accomplish the same thing.
Basically, if you run a fuel level different to what you cornerweighted at you will affect the balance. If you have a passenger, you will affect the balance. If you carrry home a load of groceries, you affect the balance.

More effective? Not at all. Proper coilovers that do not have the dual adjustable bracket use helper springs. There is no preload that is being changed when you adjust the ride height. One argument manufacturers use for the dual bracket setup is that you "maintain full stroke regardless of ride height". That is true, however the majority of these dual adjustable's have so little stroke to begin with that its a moot point.
