I'm about to install a negative wedge kit and eibach 1" dropped springs. I figure this will give a a realistic 2" drop in front. I'm ordering a set of leafs from springs n things to raise the rear 2".
It's hard to judge with my current clapped out springs, so I wanted input from those who have installed new springs how this would make the car sit.

On my 67 I have the negative wedge kit and TMC springs. With only the springs the front dropped about 1 inch. With the neg-wedge it dropped about another inch. So, your front drop estimate is right on.

In the rear I have TMC springs and a 2 inch lowering blocks (Mustang's Unlimited). I also changed over the spring plates to Mustang units. Gone now are the rubber spring insulators, which appear to account for a 1 inch drop. I've noticed most early Cougars seem to sit lower in the rear and I think it's the rubber insulators that do it.
