CofG is calculated INCLUDING the suspension.
also aluminum suspension components are heavier and therefor increase unsprung weight, which is bad.
as i've posted over in the pro4 thread, aluminum suspension pieces should only be used in 2 situations:
1) plastic parts have excessive slop which cant be remedied
2) plastic parts break too frequently.
basically only run aluminum if you have to.
