what is the down side to using this type of lift?

what are the issues with doing it this way for a minor lift? is 1" or 2" fairly useable without much chance of cv failure? tires will wear unevenly?

the picture shows strut extensions, that's it. the 3 cylinders are just spacers/extenders for the top three mounting studs on the front struts. they go between the strut and the body mounting points.
the other two are the rear strut tops, those extended pieces of metal are just metal welded to the strut top as spacers between the strut and body.

Gary, the other post has all the disadvatages listed. It is a hack job at best. Guarranteed to devour axles, mounts and possibly even struts/mounts.
and because there isn't any offset in the front strut extensions....it won't compensate for the camber.
I'm sure SJR could make something based on an EA82, that would work how you want it to....
