Default Roll Center question

So I kind of understand shimming under the suspension arm blocks raises the roll center. My question is how does angling it affect handling? For example the front of the pins sit higher than rear and vice versa.

If the rear of the front pins are higher than the front then this is called "anit-dive" Just as it implies that when the weight transfers to the front of the car it will resist pressing down on the arms. In the rear, commonly you will see the front blocks higher than the rear to give the car "anit-squat". This keeps the car from transfering too much weight to the rear end. I hope this helps.
