I've got the SL's on SAM with lower spring + the rears have been cut too, as at the time didn't realise they were SL's :rolleyes:

But as a result its locked the rear right up and makes for great handling, but to be honest I wouldn't recomend it as the stress on the rear components must be horrendous :hidesbehi and as a result plan to change my set-up in the very near future :shifty:

Wouldn't the steering and wheel geometries become misalligned if you change the ride height when upgrading suspension components?

No, but you can end up with more camber and thus require realignment depending on how low and how much you get. But as a rule no geometery should need be adjusted.
