Never liked the lowered look, so we would have to up a little.

I would make sure your upper ballpoints are ok. in most cases if the upper ballpoint is bad you need to change the control arm/upper balljoint.(if it is a one piece). If you change the upper control arm you need an alignment immediately. where i live I had to pay $79 at sears fro a 4 wheel alignment.
I also would check the leafspring hangers and shackles for rust.

na, pull the bumper off and bolt the valance on. youll need to find stock brackets for the fogs (took me 4 months) or just fab your own. the lights are the same as the fogs on a 89-93 mustang GT
