Thanks again - oh, yes, I have to add my "I cannot believe how helpful the people are on this forum" comment - because it is true! It seems like I learn something helpful virtually every day.
There'* lots of things they help, But basically they keep you in the seat and tires on the ground flatter. Of course a tire that'* flat to the ground has better grip than one that'* leaned funny because you're doing an emergency lane change. The only difference you will notice is a tighter feeling car when you turn sharply. The only downside is that they are supposed to be lubricated every two years, But don't worry, I'm working on a set that never needs lubricated and should out last even the Energy Suspension ones.
