X2 ball joints?

What's the point of these? I lowered my mustang 2 inches and dont really see the need for more suspension upgrades, I get prety good grip on my front wheels with the 245/35/18 wheels, do these lower your car more somehow? I just don't see how ball joints can do all that these claim and I hear alot of talk from you guys about them

The X2 ball joints change the steering geometry. When you lower the car 2 inches, it affects the steering geometry and puts the spindles in some awkward angles which I'm turn reduces the effectiveness of the cars ability to turn and brake under extreme situations.

I has the X2s on my cobra and they made a huge increase in the cars turn-in and braking.
