Purpose of adjustable LCA's?

I realize I need a adjustable UCA when I drop the car as well as a adjustable pan hard bar to center the rear axle. So what purpose do adjustable LCA's serve? I plan on doing the eibach pro kit so it's not a huge drop and will use the relocation brackets.

I think adjustable lowers are sorta pointless. You'll need an adjustable upper to correct pinion angle, but solid LCAs with brackets should be fine for most applications. My plan is the BMR lowers with brackets, with the JPC adjustable upper.

Added complexity isn't always a useful thing!

Adjustable LCA are for keeping your axle centered in the wheel wells i think

Yes true, whenever you raise or lower a vehicle adjustable suspension items are used to keep unwanted stress off bushings/studs. Also keeping the axle proportions correct benefits ride quality

Kind of what I was thinking, think I'll stick with non adjustable and do relocation brackets when I do a mild drop.

I want to switch to adjustable lowers cause on my passenger side my axle is about a 1/4 inch closer to the wheel well but I think I'm just being picky
