I am pretty sure that the car actually does lean less than it did prior to installing the new Bilsteins. I imagine that the greater height of the car could be due to the new plastic bushings that slide on the top of the old shocks. The previous ones were pretty badly eroded. It could be that this was the only reason that the tires were cupping.

I noticed that the spoiler would drag on a particular parking lot stop before I replaced these and no longer does.

At the same time I changed the shocks, I also replaced the small shock on the steering.

The rear tires were not wearing in an irregular way, but the front ones were.
