I can't find the post now, but a member spoke to a Subaru insider who claimed alu LCAs have "different geometry" - whatever this means...
Seems to me that changing the shape of the LCA doesn't affect the distance between the knuckle and the the ground (that's controlled by the wheel), and it doesn't afffect the distance between the knuckle and the chassis (that's controlled by the strut/spring). Basically, what sgt said.

So I wonder if the USDM and JDM knuckles are different. In other words, would JDM knuckles lower the front of a USDM car?
