Thank you all for the replies I found them all very helpful. I just order the Tokico Illumna 5-way adjustable shocks and struts and I decided to go with the Eibach Pro-kit springs that should drop the car 1.5 inches. As for the kit that Tokico offers, with the shocks, struts, and springs, the springs that come in that kit are a linear spring witch would be awesome for competeing due to the ease of adjustment for diffrent handling conditions. I decided to go with the Eibach's due to the progressive spring rate for every day driving, plus I hear that it makes the car stick to the road.
You should get caster/camber plates also. Did you order the Tokico for lowered stangs? See sig. They are a little shorter and cheaper. Did you look at the Tokico web site, it shows the kit for lowered stangs? Offset rack bushings would also be a good investment, they're only like 15 to 20 bucks. It aligns the steering due to the lower springs.
