Norm, perhaps you know this - I'm lowering about 1.75/1.5 inches (rear/front). Do I need to adjust pinion angle?

Yup. :icon_that:

Late Model Resto has the pair on their site for $350. You should also get some GT500 Strut mounts if you're already lowering and replacing the struts and shocks anyway.
