This adjustable PHB is recommended so you can center the rear, but it's not absolutely necessary:
Adjustable LCAs won't correct the angle. LCA Relo Brackets do that, but they're not necessary with a 1.5" drop. On the contrary, even though I sell the strongest set on the market, I don't recommend installing the LCA Relos unless you plan to weld and brace the axle housing at the same time as the LCA Relo installation. Otherwise, you could spin a tube and have major problems.
Interesting I would have thought that adj LCA's that were adjusted shorter than the stock length would have reestablished the parallel geometry. One less thing to buy now. I think I will need them with a one piece drive shaft though.
To confirm: For lowering & handling I just need the springs/scocks/struts/sway bars. Pan hard to correct centering of axle if I want. Nothing needed in the front with only a 1.3 in drop. No tires will wear uneven or anything like that.
Will it being a convertable make it drop any extra amount above the 1.3 -> 1.5 specs for that kit? I would want it to look funny dropped extra in the back as opposed to the front for example. I am looking for similar wheel/fender gaps if that makes sense.
I've only ran across one kit "made" for a vert with a 1" drop all around, which sense it drops all wheels the same amount, would leave uneven gaps as the car has today.
Every other kit says it will "also" fit a vert, but I think the vert weighing more would change the springs up a bit.
I am concerned about this extra weight affecting the look and handling of a kit. Unless that kit is specifically designed for a vert.
