In my opinion, there are actually more tuning variables in IFS mode:
Different length on the pushrods, will change the rocker geometry and spring action.
Adding or removing ball link shims on the rockers, will change the rocker ratio.
That's in addition to the spring rate/pistons/oil wt.
In contrast, standard stand up shocks, have different holes/shock angles to accomplish the same thing.
The fine differences, are:
Stand up, have limited # of mounting holes to choose from.
IFS, infinitely adjustable turnbuckle length.
However, I run the standard stand up shocks, as I'm more familiar to tune.
And for comparison, my friend runs IFS.....cars handle similar (after the IFS received softer rear red (hard type) springs.
