Go FRPP over SR. Much better quality. Also, you'll need an adjustable panhard bar, camber plates, and I think you might need LCA relocation brackets with the drop the K springs give.
With Roush AB's, stay stock the rest of the exhaust, otherwise it's ridiculously loud, and extremely raspy.

If you don't put the adj. Panhard bar, your rear axle will be out to one side. Depending on the drop, you'll need camber plates as well, and LCA relocation brackets, also advisable to change shocks and struts, as the stock ones will wear out faster with a drop.

SR = Sh*tty Replacements

Go with FRPP. Bare minimum lowering setup is springs, adj. strut mounts, and adj. panhard bar. However, without ball joints/bumpsteer/lca relocation brackets/shocks/struts don't expect an amazing ride quality and performing car.

Why none recommends BMR springs? I've read lots of great reviews online. Can't comment personally as I don't own a mustang yet. But will be very soon

BMR springs are supposed to drop the car 1.5 inch on all four corners giving it a nice stance while also sustaining comfortable ride. That's what all I heard

If you use Ford racing springs and shocks/dampers 1.5" drop and ford mount you don't need caster camber plates using a selected combination of parts from a shop that knows what they are doing you don't need extra parts that are just an added adjustment point. Panhard bar and brace and LCA's with relo brackets.

^You don't need a new panhard bar brace or new LCA's. Just an adj. bar and relo brackets. An adj. strut mount seems to be debatable whether you 'need' it or not.

BMR appear to have quality parts I just was going with the OP's options. I went with Steeda Ultra-Lites.

I've heard that anything paired with roush axle back sounds terrible. However, if you go on YouTube, "Thatdudeinblue" has a great video of roush AB with an off-road X. That video sold me on it. Check it out

The Roush AB's seem to hold their ground with different setups on the 5.0, however, I would never EVER put them on the 3.7.

There's a white 3.7 and a white 5.0 in my area with the Roush AB's and the 3.7 sounds like an amplified fart can.

^We're not, this is the 5.0 section. I'm just saying most of the 'problems' with the Roush AB's are from putting them on the 3.7.

Well I've decided to do the sport line springs j&m adjustable panhard bar and j&m adjustable camber plates the hurst billet shifter and thinking about some sort of muffler delete. I had the resonators deleted this am and the car has a good tone just not much volume. Will the car sound like a straight piped z-71 if I do a muffler delete??

Correct not a need but I wanted adj LCA's and Adj Panhard and matching brace with the LCA relo brackets. but with this set up no need for plates it sits right in perfect and the four wheel alignment was a breeze tire wear has been OP.

Adjustable LCA'S will cause more problems.
