yeah that was a problem with that particular MacStrut suspension design and where the steering rack was located - that was one of the things they fixed with the 8th gen Si. lowering the RSX ruined the steering feel because the steering arms were sent at crazy angles (at least that's what was explained to me, I could be "misremembering") - this wasn't an issue at all with the Si.
In driving around the wagon so far, still no discernable penalty in ride quality and the alignment feels perfect. I went to get it checked this morning but they wanted me to leave it for 3 or 4 hours and I had no way to get back home. Too much stuff going on today for that sort of delay.
