I had about a 1.5" drop on mine on the front but I had removed my front isolators. I think H&Rs website says the same as AM but I haven't looked in a while.

Ok, AM probably measures it with isolators and Stage 3 measures w/o isolators. I was planning on removing my isolators anyway for that extra little drop. 1.5 is about what i like.

I'm real happy with my H&R race springs, I'm sure you will love them. I also grabbed camber bolts to give me some extra camber adjustment, and I would recommend picking up a set with your springs.

Does having a small amount of negative camber affect my tire life?

I'm at -1 degree right now and haven't noticed any unusual wear, but then I also have 140 tread wear tires so I wasn't exactly expecting long tire life anyways

I run 1.5 degrees of negative camber and my tires are wearing very evenly. With the stock .5 degrees I would wear the outside shoulder of my front tires. Plus the extra camber helps aid turn in. I do a lot of mountain driving and corner carving so I need to add camber to save my tires.

If you run only highway then it will affect tore wear a bit. That said, between a little corner carving, occasional auto X and lots of highway, I have no abnormal wear after 15k km with -1.6 degrees of negative camber. I think stock spec is -.5

You can add CC plates so you can run castor. That way you dont have to runto much stagnate neg camber. Stock plates you cant run run positive castor since theyr riveted into the shock towers.

Lowering springs, upgraded shocks/struts, subframe connectors... It's all stock though since its a Bullitt. Subframes are the same ones on the verts, ford racing c springs (decent) and Tockio shocks/struts. Definetly can use improvement.

Just so long as its not the drunk type... You will be amazed at some of the idiocy you'll see at college. Also Halloween will become your favorite holiday if it isn't already.

One good thing about a Mustang at college is that you'll never be the DD unless you are driving someone else's car. NOBODY wants to cram into that back seat... which in and of itself presents a whole different problem...

I don't like it when other people drive me around. Whenever I do stuff with my friends I'm the one driving.

I like that attitude man keep it that way, because that's how I would be. Even know they are your friends you can't always trust their driving or judgement, I think of any car or truck as a bullet traveling down the road just waiting on someone else's poor decision making to cause that bullet to strike and kill someone else...
