Question DD fox coupe spring/shock lowering Qs

Hi guys, I searched and searched and searched but didn't find a specific answer so here goes...

I have a 100% street driven 89 coupe with SN95 17" rims and stock susp. Needless to say it sits way too high.

I'm looking for the best combination of ride hight (1" drop or so, does that rule out Bullitt stuff?), ride quality (sporty but not jarring) and price (can I piece together used stuff?). So what spring/strut setup will be the best compromise between these goals?

I'm thinking that one way or another MM CC plates and offset rack bushings will be in the package.

Wishful thinking: I have new stock replacement struts on there now, are there any lowering springs that work with them? (Probably not.)

Thanks.

Ok, I found some Bullitt info but I didn't find anything about stock struts/shocks and lowering springs. Anyone know?

Or is that so dumb no one even asks about that?
