Default 1" Drop or not?

OK I am to the point of making some decisions about suspensions. Should I work in the 1" drop or is it not worth the trouble? (70 Mach)

Thanks in advance!!

If you're talking about the Arning drop, yes, definitely.

I would do it.. I have done it actually.. However, I have had problems with rubbing the inner valance and a hard turn since I did it. It seems that I need to shim out the upper A arm like they used to do for the earlier mustangs in order to get the alignment happy. Ive read on shelby forums of this same issue with actual racing shelby cars and the old fix for the issue was to cut the valance where the rub issues occured.

That was "at a hard turn" full turn of the wheel it rubs.. you can see in my pic that the wheel sits forward in the wheel well.

If you've ever driven a Mustang before and after, you'll never have one without it.
