Old school suspension gurus needed!!!

Just got my car back from getting an alignment (TruSpeed - good bunch of guys). They told me that my front struts were purposefully bent (by PO) in order to lower the car. They said this was a technique that was done regularly back in the day. Bending helped keep some of the adjustment ability to fine tune, rather than maxing out adjustments. Haven't measured specifically, but my car is not terribly low, seems be at or a touch lower than euro height.

Anyone ever hear of this method before, and can you expand on the theory???
