Lowering [done right] helps in terms of stability. But cuts wheel travel.
The various suspension types have a 'roll center'. It can vary from the ground to at least the axle centerline. Were it higher, the vehicle would lean like a motorcycle (desirable but complicated).

Optimal is to have a line between the front and rear roll centers be as level as possible.
