Good front suspension upgrades?

Be noticed that my front end gets kinda high when I do a WOT, any upgrades that would help this, I'm thinking for replacing the strut bar that came with my GT for a Ford Racing Strut tower bar, and getting a Ford racing LCA, if it isn't already installed on my GT Premium. Any other suggestions, no lowering spring suggestions please.

Lowering springs. Haha. Know you don't wanna hear it. But your front end isn't getting high. Your rear is squatting and getting low giving the illusion your front end is getting high. Lowering springs helped mine out a lot.

Right now I'm kinda strapped for cash, so I'm looking for cheaper alternatives, I don't wanna get springs, then have to get a pan hard bar or whatever it's called, out of curiosity, how much is a proper lowering kit, and what would I need.

For a mild drop you only need springs and camber bolts. So it can be done for under $300

Would 1" be a mild drop?

Ok then, I might actually get lowering springs, any suggestions other than springs though?

No lowering springs... Adjustable shocks. Make the rear stiffer thereby dampening squat energy. But it would drive extremely crappy without front struts because your front will be soft and rear is stiff.

Tower braces won't squat for your squat.

Adjustable shocks are about... $300-350 I think.
Full kit is $699 from AM.

Tokico Adjustable Shocks/Struts

Swarr Bar

I don't think the swarr bar will actually eliminate squat. Best way is still to lower your center of gravity.
