If not using the bumpsteer feature, any benefit to running motorsports front toe arms

I've got a set of these sitting on my shelf:

RSS Adjustable Front Toe/Bump Steer Kit PORSCHE - RSS



I am wondering, if I'm not using the bump steer feature (since I am not lowered), what would be the benefit of installing these vs the OEM style front toe arms?

They both have a ball joint at the outboard end right? So no rubber, just a monoball?

I'm wondering if I should install these arms and if I would receive any benefit?

You probably wouldn't notice any difference.

The benefit is not just bump-steer. They are more rigid to take the abuse of tracking, If you ride rumble strips and the like while your on track these are a good upgrade.

I might put them on next time I go to tweak the alignment up front.
