I wanted to drop it 1.5 inches or atlases one inch cause I also put in some new rims and it just makes the front set of wheels look bad with the suspension so high.

1 inch looks great. And normally with that little of a drop, you don't need castercamber plates either...

Yeah, 2 inch is pushing it and you have to avoid every speed bump... But a good 1-1.25 drop is 1. Cheaper than a bigger drop because you don't need to buy anything but springs, and 2. You won't have rubbing or scraping issues.

Re: Suspension?

if the tires have an overall height thats stock the car should sit about 28.25~ inches from the ground to the edge of the fender at its highest point~ yup thats DAMN high... Ford needs to learn a lesson on stance from BMW.
