Ride height dilema

Hi all. My 2006 V6 coupe w/PP currently has ford racing n springs which are said to drop 1.25" front and rear and the shocks and struts to go with them. Running on my stock 17" bullitt rims, i could live with the wheel gap because i was going to get staggered 19" rims eventually.

Now that i've put 19" rims on it, i still find the wheel gap to be quite significant at the back (2.5" gap) and the rear end looks quite lifted. I'm ok with the front being 1.5" gap so if i manage to drop the rear up to 1" more to even out the gaps, i'm a happy.

I've considered several options:
Roush rear springs kit
H&R Super Sport springs

The problem with the Roush rear springs kit is that it's made for GTs and i don't know how much lowering it offers on a GT let alone a V6. If anyone has tried this on their V6, let me know what you think.

As for the H&R Super Sport springs, I can't justify spending another $250 just to drop the rear another 0.4". Any advice?

I'm not going to consider coilovers being that this is my DD and i also just don't have the money for it. For people who have the Eibach sportlines and running 19" rims what kind of wheel gap are you looking at?

Go with h&r super sports along with caster/camber plates. There would be no rubbing and the wheel gap is maybe an inch... The stance looks mean and I think it's perfect!

I have caster camber plates. Is it 1" wheel gap in the rear? What's the front like?

probably a little less. All I know is that my rear is out of alignment and my springs lean to one side, giving one side of my car a 2" drop and it looks nice hahaha I should probably get it realigned...
