    Toss in some SN-95 springs. There's your drop. I personally like my car level front and rear. I use SN-95 springs all around. Good looking Cougar by the way.

    94-98 Mustang GT springs work fine, but 99-04 GT springs will work as well.

    Be forewarned that the rear may drop too much with Mustang springs. I have adjustable rear control arms and had to turn them about half way up, to get the ride height even with 98 Mustang GT springs front and rear.

    My wheels are from a 99. Not a convertible. But they will work.
