I already posted this in my own recent thread in this section, but thought I should put it up here so I could get some more eyes on it.

From my other thread:
So of course after considering suspension stuff I want to do some things I've thought of since buying the car new over 8 years ago. Namely lowering and handling upgrades. I would be doing all the work myself. Here's a couple of options I'm considering.

Both would include either the SR (AM brand) or FRPP front LCA and new front outer tie rods or the bumpsteer kit.

Option 1
-SR Performance springs (1.5 " drop) since they're on sale right now at AM for $99
-Koni Str.T struts/shocks or possibly Strange adjustable (same price as Koni's)
-J&M or QA1 caster/camber plates (although maybe I could just get away with using camber bolts and the Ford racing strut mount upgrade?)

Option 2
-Keep it simple and go with something like the Eibach Pro-System-Plus Kit (1.3" front, 1.5" rear drop), which would probably save me a little bit of money in addition to adding a front and rear sway bar

Also aware that I should probably do an adjustable rear panhard bar, although some people seem to think it's not necessary. Any tips/advice? Am I forgetting anything you guys would consider necessary? Relocation brackets? Thanks for the help.

After some further reading in this thread, it looks like the Eibach pros with Tokico adjustables are a popular combination. Any thoughts on how the Tokicos compare to the Strange adjustables?

I did Roush springs all around, koni str.t shocks and struts, j&m adjustable panhard bar, steeds hd strut mounts/ camber plates with the ford k member brace and frpp strut tower brace. Handles great and is low enough to eliminate some of the 4x4 stance but doesn't bottom out or scrape on driveways or bumps.
