Sorry for the noob question but what is the benefit?

Nothing to do with aesthetics.

The goal -- get the car down to 95-100mm front, 105-110mm rear and improve over all handling. However, lowering a car's center of gravity is good....until...it's NOT.  Lowering our cars too much can have the opposite effect of reducing grip unless you can lower the roll center while still maintaining favorable geometry and camber change throughout the functional range of the suspension travel -- we don't want to  drop the roll center below ground. :)  Hence the need to change the uprights.

@Jack my interest is to improve the travel length in the Ohlins ... more travel resulting in a better ride being the idea.

Not only will we be able to lower the car without changing the suspension geometry, we will be able to adjust the bump steer on the front and rear. Another nice feature on the rear is not having to use the eccentric bolt to adjust the camber. The rear uprights have shims at the upper mounting point. That allows camber changes without having a large impact on rear toe.

Jack, you will need to be "Really Good"! 😇

Later,
Eldon
