Default +1 degree alloy hubs and toe

Hey lately i've been running with the 3.25 degree toe ( using alloy blocks tho ) and fitting the + 1 alloy hubs in the opposite side to remove 1 degree of total toe .

Is there a difference in doing it with the alloy spacers and keeping the normal hubs fitted to equal the same ammount of rear toe ?

the only thing i can think of is the accual space of the lower shock mounting points would be 1mm differnet ..

whats your thoughts ??

The main other effect is a wheelbase change - so different stability and weight distribution.
You've already mentioned the shock mounting positions but have also modified the roll centre, camber gain and overall rear track. None of those are very big changes though so probably not worth losing sleep over.

The important thing is to try it and see what it does...
