At a 2.5 drop you will definitely need CC plates and an alignment. I'd also make sure your struts and shocks are good, and replace any suspension bushings that are worn. Don't forget ball joints if they are worn as well. Throw in a bump steer kit to finish it off.

Shocks/struts
CC Plates
Bumpsteer kit
Ball Joints

I personally wouldn't go that low without coil overs.

Personally i'm a huge advocate against camber bolts. Even if the car is never driven hard i wouldn't use bolts.

Tein is very common on japanese. From my experience they are worthwhile. H&R is more common on euro. Also very highly recommended. I can't speak to mustangs specifically, but the rule of thumb I learned was this:

1" drop or less - no need for camber adjustment or new shocks. Unless you're going for negative camber or your shocks are very old, don't bother.

More than 1" - shocks and springs with camber adjustment. Better safe than sorry. Not sure what other mustang specific parts are recommended.

My last Honda had a lot of suspension work done. Camber adjustment was necessary with the 2" drop. I did fully adjustable camber arms instead of just the bolts. Gave me far more fine tuning ability. With all I had done, the car handled light a go kart. A track monster.
