None taken, and you are welcome.
Just remember to measure the distance from the side of the body on both sides, subtract one difference from the other, then divide by 2 to get how much towards the passenger side to move the axle, it will probably be less than 1/2".

So if one side is 1 inch the other is 1and a half . I'd have to adjust 1/4 inch correct?

Basically Yep. Centre the wheels and axle in the middle of the car based on how much the wheel stick out from the body

Yes, that is correct. Remember that it doesn't take much to move the rearend, maybe one or two turns on the bar will be sufficient.
They after making the adjustment, put the car on the ground and roll it out of the garage, just to set the suspension, then roll it back in and take your measurement again..........kind of like measuring twice and cutting once......then put blue locktite on the threads and tighten the lock nut.

I got my SRs from American muscle installed a few days ago. Ride quality is great. Will it drop in the rear more?

Any new spring will settle a small amount........it does vary but I would say maybe 1/8" to 1/4" max over the next 500 miles.

When lowering you're still going to get creaks and pops. When it starts popping from the front end you will need to change out your strut tower mounts. Most guys get the GT500 mounts and it solves that problem. Caster Camber plates will also fixed it and that's the route I went. The rear end will get creaks and then it will be time to get a set of LCA's with relocation brackets. I see you bought the J&M Pan hard bar so your good there.

Thanks for the info bud. I still need an allignment too. So is there any adjustment too chamber without plates or bolts. I don't wanna buy those unless I need them. I'm very tight on Money right now. What do I do? Just get alignment "checked" will shops check it for free free before I order bolts?

SR's are even an drop all around don't forget, so you will maintain that rake in the rear. I personally love that look. Looks like it should've from the factory.

You just got the 1.5" drop springs right?, if you did I doubt you will need anything to change the caster/camber. In the 5 Mustangs I've helped lower...mine had the Eibach Sportline which is a 2" drop in the rear............non of the Mustangs needed caster/camber plates or the camber bolt which is junk....don't use it! As long as the front end is within Ford Spec's it will be fine. Did you stay with the OE struts or change to something else?

I bought the caster camber plates to stop some of the noise up front from my eibach coil overs and to make sure that my alignment could be corrected due to how low my car is. I doubt a shop will do anything for free so good luck with that. You might not need any aftermarket parts to get aligned.

My Ford dealer checked the alignment on my Mustang after I lowered it and didn't charge me because it was withing specs............Les Schwab will also do the same and if it meets spec they will not charge you.

Installed Sr lowering springs

So on any old car is the chamber adjustable at all? Or is this something only done with plate/bolts

Most all cars have sometype of adjustment for caster and camber...even a straight axle.

Is there any benefit in adding wheel spacers to have my wheel stance wider? I got some room that I could widen up my stance an inch or so. Do people do this?

If you want to widen your stance.........get different wheels.........spacers are a band-aid approach at best............I've never used them and never would..IMHO

Installed Sr lowering springs

Is it a big deal if there was a little paint chip in the corner of one of the ends of the springs exposing bare metal. I should have touched it up with touch up paint but forgot. Is it gonna start rusting over time and eventually break?

I'm all OCD about it now

You're in Vacaville, doesn't rain much, no salt on the roads.........if you are going to keep the car for another 50 years.........I've had cars with rusting springs that were 50 years old and they never broke.............I know you are OCD but I wouldn't worry about it..........it's not going to hurt anything......

Thanks sir. Makes me feel a little better. Being from Michigan (i wish I still lived there) I know about salt on the roads and snow. Lots of rust buckets there too.

So rust really isn't an issue in cars that don't see a lot of snow and salt? I was asking the guy at autozone if they had torch red touch up paint and told him I wanted to touch up some minor chips to stop rust from forming and he looked at me like I was crazy and said I don't need to worry about rust
