Suspension

I've heard a lot of mixed opinions on creating a quality suspension system. I'm not looking for the best system in the world, but I would like to actually make the ride more comfortable whilst lowering the car and improving handling. My stang only has about 10k miles so I hate to spend money on shocks if I don't have to. Can I just get springs w/o shocks? Which springs? I should mention that I like the look as is, so I'd like to lower the front and back equally.

Will that cause uneven tire wear or anything?

+1 caster plates are always a good idea on a drop id say lower than 1.4-1.5

Always get an alignment after you change your suspension...

Re: Suspension

Any issues with getting used springs? Do they get lazy?
