I am going to do the Shelby drop during the next couple of days and have a few questions on the matter. I am running all stock suspension parts with the exception of 1" sway bar and gas adjust shocks. Will I need a negative wedge kit when I do this? Also, what would be the ideal alignment specs once the drop is done? Thanks

No wedge kit required at only a 1" drop.
I like 1/2 degree negative camber. (You're still going to get some positive
camber gain and 1/2 deg neg will help minimize the nasty stuff you don't
want to see)
Put as much positive caster as you can get. 3 degrees if possible.
Toe in depending upon power or manual. Minimum numbers. 1/16 for
manual and 1/8 for p/s.

you can do a search on this and get a lot of threads. I did the drop on my car recently and went well. I was told that if you have 2'' or more drop in the front end, you will need the negative wedge.

Thanks for the tip on the alignment specs, going to have my '67 390 GT w/Shelby drop aligned next week!
