ur question seems to be difficult to understand. Are you referring to droop and cornering on and off power.

Sounds like you're confusing droop with ride height. Droop is how far down your suspension travels at maximum -- like with the car held in the air. Makes a difference how the car lands on jumps and can also affect things in hard cornering by limiting suspension travel to prevent roll. Ride height is something very different -- how high the front or rear of the car sits off the ground at rest. Raising/lowering the height at one end will remove/add grip at that end in a corner -- this is due to the fact that you're changing the roll axis of the car by raising or lowering the roll center at a given end by changing the ride height.
