Corner Balancing

Has anyone had their M corner balanced? I am debating but would like some feed back if available. I know it is designed to significantly improve the handling but I would like some first hand experiences.

most folks that I know that gets them done are the ones that puts on coilovers, since you are messing with the dampening it kinda requires tweaking the car weight disturbution from what I understand. For it does need it on track cornering, but if you re just street why bother

My track car is corner balanced near 50/50 with 1/2 tank of gas and me sitting behind the wheel.

If you have coil-overs it is a must, and is one of the only reason one would get a coil-over IMO. The car will just feel so balanced and track completely flat into turns. There is also a plus. Because of the equal weight distribution you can change both tires on one side of the car at the same time with one jack.
