Lol i actually think it looks cool. I actually did this on an 07 gt i installed the fr500c kit on. I only installed the front springs and lowered it to see and it looked sick. Ready for some fat 50 series slicks on some prostars and little 4.5s in the front. I then installed the rear springs and sway bar kit and it still looked good but the ride got alot worse also.

with some kits for front and rear, your front is usually lowered more than the rear. I think it would look fine like that.

Don't know how much you want to lower the car but you could do a Steeda Sport spring or a Eibach Pro Kit and i think it would be ok.

I'm not sure which company but I think ford racing has springs that lowers over 1 inch in the front and only 3/4" in the back.

might look cool...
but it certainly isn't the best for hooking because your putting all the weight up front and the back will spin out even more.
its up to you i guess

i also had the same idea as you on my 03 mustang gt, i thought it would look sick like the old muscle cars, but turned out it looks pretty bad to much space in wheel well (sorry if i spelled that wrong), like others in this thread said buy a kit where it will lower the front end and also the rear, but keep the rear a little higher then the front. i think thats your best bet.
