[V8Vairs] Lower strut re-locating bracket holes

???? That would depend on what you are trying to do with the car.? If you use the original holes in the bracket your rear wheels will tend to stay more flat on the ground but I think overall handling is affected in cornering, if you put the hole up the 1" then you compromise between the stock setting and the aftermarket with a better handling car.? Although my race car was not a V-8 I did use the bracket and I tried both ways and settled on the raised hole position about 1" up.

Any thoughts on whether to use the existing holes on the lowering bracket,  
or to re-drill 1" up (or 1.25" or 1.5") on a Crown V8 Car?
