Go to American Muscle website, select lowering springs and there are usually customer install instructions or at least mfg install. You may have to check a couple of brands but they usually have them with pics and step by step for most products.

With a basic drop, you shouldn't. But, since you brought up LCA's, while your in the area, might be a good idea to upgrade if you haven't already. Some MM's or Steeda's would make a difference.

Edit: fyi: pending how much of a drop, you might need caster camber plates for your fronts.

It's worth checking into. As you lower the car, it pulls the axle towards the front since the LCAs are fixed length. Also as you lower it pushes the axle towards the drivers side since the panhard bar is a fixed length.

Sure you can drive it like that, but you can also screw up the geometry and it won't handle as well. It can have an effect on pinion angle also.
