If you're making a dedicated race car which will really benefit from corner weighting, then you're going to need something better than the Cheap Crap Coilovers we're discussing here.
My car is not a daily driver anymore. Not sure what 'crap I'm doing to it to make it a daily' you're talking about.

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.
