So lowering would create more rubbing ?
The entire thread is based around a car that is lowered, not stock.

When you lower the car you get an alignment that usually has more negative camber than stock so what pokes out at stock height could be flush when lowered. And also the springs are stiffer so lowering it would not necessarily mean more rubbing.

Thanks. So do you still set up with more negative camber when lowering even if you didn't have spacers with poke etc ?

Don't forget some brand tires are wider than others, even if they are all 245/40/18.
