He has a 92 SE, so it has 11 years of miles on it. The SE had softer struts and shocks then the SSE'e etc generally. If you're turning and you hit a bump etc, what happens? The shocks compress. If you've got the wheels turned and they compressed then you hit places you wouldn't always hit.

Well i dont know how much you weigh tofu, but i'm about 175, and i bet my car goes a lil more then 1 cm down....
