Most likely you'll have to have the caster and camber adjusted and if you go real low you'll prolly need caster camber kit for the front the rear should adjust so what the same but easiest thing to do is take it to a alignment shop and they can square it all away correctly

the front AND rear on an IRS vehicle have to be aligned. You should not need C/C plates for the rear but you will need them for the front if you have any sort of a drop (more than .75 inches).

If you need C/C plates (probably will same basic install is needed for them as springs (or most of it) so you may as well invest in a set now. I HIGHLY recommend Maximum Motorsports 4 bolt C/C plates (best on the market)

Along with them since the 04/04 cobra have different shocks up front than normal the dust boots wont work with MM's C/C plates. They also sell the correct dust boots and they are cheap so be sure to order a set when you order your C/C plates. You can call maximum motorsports for info on them.

You can also look into new endlinks~ as when you lower the car you push the sway bar up a bit where it mounts to the A-Arms... not needed just FYI.
