I would not recommend either of those kits for a daily driven car.

Check with Maximum Motorsports. They have suspension packages from mild to wild. I’m sure they can fix you up with exactly what you need.

If you're not really looking at lowering your GT, you could just get new shocks and struts. That would make a huge difference in ride and performance. Either of these would be good IMO...

The problem with my car when i bought it it was allready droped this way seems to me like they just cut the springs and was not droped right so im havin to change my lower control arms so i might as well change my suspension while im at it my car wiggles alot when im turning and it eats my tires up quick on the outter sides in the front so thats why i want to upgrade my suspension and keep the hieght maybe alittle higher cause my exhaust hits everywhere lol so thats the problem with my car so i know it needs a real alignment and im hopin i can change the control arms and add the suspension kit and take it to get alligment and hope it runs much better

It does look cool all slammed like that.

If you need to drive it around and use it as a somewhat practical everyday car, I recommend replacing everything in the suspension that is worn out, and replacing the springs with a good quality set of lowering springs from possibly one of the vendors mentioned earlier.
I don't think that you will be happy with a low quality coil-over kit...

Once you get the car raised up, the suspension geometry will be closer to where it was originally designed to work correctly. This will improve the driving and ride quality tremendously.

Bilstein shocks/struts. Good springs. BMR Control Arms. Call it. You don't need coilovers unless you do a ton of corner carving.
