+1, if you want good springs lower than 2" you need coilovers.

The H&R Race springs don't quite lower you that much, 1.25-1.5" but they are extremely good springs and will probably handle better than most (except coilovers)

I got my springs from eBay for $78
Cannot complain for the price at all. Have her a good stance. And the springs are pretty rough honestly but I don't see much difference from stock

I had the H&R Street-Perf. Coil-Over (Premium, Performance Street) put in last fall. I also had my '08 vert lowered 1&3/4" (not quite 2") and installed some KB upper & lower control arms, anti-squat brackets, an adjustable panhard bar, and camber bolts. Handles great for daily driver!

H&R super sports will give you a good drop. Or if handling is more important than looks, the race springs are great, just not as low. I have H&R race.

What are you running for rims and tires? Some of that gap can be taken up by upgrading to 18" or 20's

If this car is your daily driver I wouldn't recommend more that 2". Any more than that you start having issues with parking lot ramps and speed bumps. People go lower with no problems but it really depends on where you live. Where I'm from the ramps are steep and every lot has speed bumps. Sucks!

I am putting 18 on and the hight with the tires will be 20-21 inches so that what I was referring to as even with the 2 inch drop there will be 2-3 inches gap in the wheel wheel.

I wouldnt recommend going lower then 2" drop for a street mustang. You will run into handling issues with the shocks etc. You will will have increased bump steer and bump travel issues. A good ride height would be aroun 1.5" drop front and rear.
You will also need to look into CC plates to to adjust for camber castor settings. Max out positive castor and run a small amount of neg camber for the street.

I wouldnt to b hugely concerned with scraping rather then effecting handling if u drop the ride height excessively. Our cars were never designed to b lowered to 2.5".
But to each his own.
