More noticable on trucks, they sit two inches higher in the rear than they do in the front. Its common for lowering kits to be called by their respectable amounts, such as a 2 inch front and 4 inch rear drop, called a 2/4 drop.
On trucks its an extra bit of suspension travel when you load the back down. I can't figure out why they do it to cars though. :confused:
The C4 was designed with a lower front to prevent airborne flight at high speeds. Think of the whole front hood as an aircraft elevator. Also, stick your hand out the window driving down the highway exactly flat. Do you feel any down force? Nope, but tilt the front of your hand down just a smidge and you will start to feel down force. You want more air over a car then under it for two reasons. Less air underneath creates a vacuum and will help the car adhere, and more air over the top creates more down force. The tradeoff is friction and loss of speed......need more power to stick more and more and more........
