Almost anybody should be able to live with Ford's preferred camber setting of -0.75°. Only the gentlest driver (gentle? in a Mustang???) driving only on the Interstates should legitimately need less...

As far as the spring stiffness is concerned, the yellows have more than enough adjustability to keep them under control. Whether they allow for enough bump travel for your driving at 1.5" lowering...

I'm sure they'd be strong enough, but for anything more serious than occasional/casual autocrossing you're really going to want shocks & struts with firmer damping.
