To correct the pinion angle of the driveshaft u will need an adjustable UCA. As far as hitting the parking blocks just be more carful or get a front parking sensor from AM.

Curb Alert will solve any front end damage due to lowering the Mustang. Google them. AM sells a simular product.

I have the SR lowering springs on stock 17's (admittedly thick tires) even with the rtr splitter I dont scrape on parking blocks really. Maybe the occasional freakishly high curb but its easy to just park a little ways back. The drop isnt really that crazy on these springs

OP,

I think Oh2freshstang has the perfect advice for you here. Making sure you have the correct pinion angle, is crucial when using an aftermarket 1piece driveshaft. The best way to make pinion angle is corrected is to use an adjustable UCA. Then you'll be regain the factory suspension's geometry as well!

I wouldn't be to concerned about bottoming out with a 1.5" ride height drop. It's not significant enough to cause an issue while driving, IMO. I would be more conscious when you're parking, but that's about it. You can still take speed bumps straight on, as long as your not flying over them! Plus, we do have a curb alert parking assist sensor, that you can mount under your front bumper to help judge distance when parking.

Check out the video below if you're not familiar with the parking assist sensor. It's pretty helpful!
