What you have done is moved the shock well out of the way, but I find that making the front of the shock higher makes the car turn in less. If you use tape to hold the cells in, then the problem doesn't happen, and you get the sharp handling back again. HTH
Not entirly true auntie Pete

If you have a fully comitted accident you can bend the ballstud (even the medium one) I have bent a couple recently with the cells taped in mainly when you clip the inside track marker in a high speed corner then hit the outside one backwards

See you in the morning.
