Would you mind measuring them up for me and telling me how much further out the shock mounting is from the std. extensions ??

To me it feels like it free'd the rear-end up a touch. Corally says to put the next softer spring on it when you make the change, but to me it just felt a little free'er. Just my opinion though, some guys have told me they really didn't notice a change.

It made my car rotate better, be more consistant, and have less body roll. The longer extensions just move it out another hole... So the same distance between the other holes on the arm.

There isn't a huge "feel" difference after you go a step down on spring, but what the car is doing differently is what matters. It's all what Korey said, less roll, more consistent, better rotation. However it is not a neccesary tuning option. Some of us run them, some don't. I personally like it better.
