Default Lowering car soon- Have some ????`s

I need to know what springs and shocks to get. I really don`t want to goo too low and don`t want the car to ride $hitty. I would like to avoid getting caster camber plates if I can.I`m not gonna do the control arms yet, maybe never but not sure at this point. I know i`m gonna need an alignment but is that all after they are installed? Will I have any problem with the pinion angle or anything? I read somewhere where there is a possibility the rear end may make noise and need some adjustments. All help on this would be great. Thanks.

I have a saleen suspension kit (obviously!) and it drops about an inch and a half. The handling on it is great and everyone who has driven my car has commented on how good the suspension feels.

get some h&r or eibach springs and some tokico d spec adj s\s and you should be set. as long as you dont go lower than 2 you shouldnt need cc plates. anything else you need to know is in here...https://mustangforums.com/m_617202/tm.htm

Roush suspension system is about as good as it gets, however for straight drag their are better options - but roush is best all around by FAR.

if you take the insulators off your going to have some noise.
