if your talking about the axle with the belt pulley .... thats to tighten the belt

if your talking about the axles that holds the wheel ... thats to lower the roll center and/or change the wheel base length of the car

So lowering the axle will be lowering the CG for eg or is it the other way round like the upper arms hinge pin setting?

Lowering the axle with the pulley will lower the CG Lower the axle for the wheel I believe lowers the roll center.

Lowering the front axles will give more steering.

When you change the height of the wheel axle and adjust the rideheight again with the spring collar the suspension arms will get another zero point angle setting a different rollcenter. Some guys over here are just saying you change it to set the ride height of the chassis with smalle qualification tires and larger final tires without touching the spring collar and so not changing the zero point of the suspension.
