If you're going to get lowering springs and want to stick with your stock dampers I would do BMR, Pro-kit or hotchkis. All three have pretty low spring rates which will help. Which chin spoiler are you going with? As far as tuning I would go with VMP, Lund, AED or even Steeda.
I'd rather go fast then look good, so i'm gonna say spend your $$$ on power improvements!!!!

Kooks ss shorties,Kooks race bullet mufflers, and much more!
I would do the O/R H, CAI, and Tuner before the others but even then you may have money for that whole list after buying the performance parts. But also its all personal preference... Do you want looks or performance?
I have a 2013 Mustang GT. I already put on Flowmaster American thunder axel backs when I got the car in March.
I've got about $1400 to work with:
SCT Bama tuner from American muscle
O/R H-pipe from lethal
Lowering springs (Any Suggestions?)
Maybe a chin spoiler
It looks like you're really starting to mod your 2013 GT, that's awesome! I would definitely start with the Bama Custom tuner, O/R Mid Pipe and JLT CAI. That will free up a ton of air, which will lead to huge power gains. You'll notice big gains in Power, torque, acceleration, drive ability, gas mileage, throttle response and so much more!
Besides those mods, I think Lowering Springs and a Chin spoiler are also great mods. I went with the Eibach Sportlines on my 2011 GT and I love them! The Ride height is much lower than the Pro Kit, but doesn't prevent me from getting over speed bumps!

I just want to realign, no track duty for this car yet. Should I get an adjustable panhard bar? Or is it unnecessary?
Yes it's necessary when lowering. Depending on where you are in Florida I would go see VMP for a tune.
