I run the Koni Yellows at all 4 corners. The fronts are struts with coil overs and the rears are shocks with weight jacker control arms providing the ability to set the ride height and adjust the corner weights for amazing control of the driveability of the car. This is the setup that Griggs used for many years before the latest round of changes in their GR-40 road racing suspension package. I've been running this package for about seven years and have come to really like what it does for the handeling capability of the SN-95 Mustang!
The real issue is as Chris said, "what do you want from the car." The best thing you can do for yourself is to decide what you want the car to do better than it does now. Remembering that the Ford engineers set the car up for a compromise of handeling, ride quality, and traction. The best thing you can do for yourself is to get away from the "I want to lower her a bit" mentality and go for what charisteristics you want to improve. Spend some time with the MM and Griggs web pages checking out autocross suspensions if you want the car to be alot more fun to drive on the street. Unless you're a died in the wool drag racer, stay away from specialized drag racing suspensions. The reason I say that it because the more things you do to make the car better for drag racing, the worse the car will be for a daily driver. On the other hand, improving the cars autocross characteristics will make it that much more fun to drive on the street as a daily driver.
Back to shocks, the Koni yellows are single adjustables, and by using the Ford springs, you can probably just tweak the suspension to give you the ride height you're looking for, and the SA Konis will allow you some control over the harshness of the ride.
Do yourself a favor, and spend some time doing research as to what you want the car to do better.... remembering that research is alot less expensive than purchasing parts!
