I haven't read through the whole thing, but for those of you who have, how much is it "safe" to lower our cars. By "safe" I mean before sacrificing performance.

I believe somewhere throughout the articles the guy mentioned 2 inches maximum! I'd have to read through again.

Superstrut is in the multi-link category. Toyota was ahead of the game when they came out with superstrut geometry. What do you mean by apply. Are you talking about when lowering the car. Superstrut is just an upgraded version of mcpherson suspension. Read up on the superstrut thread for the differences between the two.
