LCA/Susp. ?? Lowered guys help

OK....I know this is the 1000th thread but stuff is being learned that was thought different early on w/ these cars.
I'm lowering car with the Ford Racing K springs which is 1.5 all around. Using GT 500 strut mounts.Buying BMR PH bar. Struts/shocks later.
MY question is....Does the stock LCA have to be relocated w/ relocation brackets?? Or the alternative which is adjustable LCA's?? Can all that be left stock without issue ??? I got some adjustable LCA's but not wanting them on for now. Let me know fellows. I know I may or may not need camber bolts but I deal with that and get some if so. Thanks and forgive for yet another dreaded lowering thread.

My lca's are stock with 1" lower and adj PH bar, but from everything I've read, pinion angle for the driveshaft is thrown off, Napoleon knows quite a bit about this, hopefully he'll chime in

That hit the nail on the head. That said, mine are still pretty level with a 1.5" drop in the rear. I plan to add an adjustable UCA to correct the pinion angle though sometime soon (probably when the car is down for the winter).
