Drop Spindles

Hey everybody!!

After owning my car for six years, I'm FINALLY getting around to the suspension work. Obviously the normal thing to do would be to grab a set of coilovers or lowering springs/shocks/struts. However, I came across the drop spindle idea on one of the other forums and liked the idea of only lowering the front end without screwing up the geometry. I've done a fair amound of reading on it, but I still have a couple other questions:

2) Is this incredibly stupid and should I just act like every other person and lower it the normal way?
3) Has anyone done this on their car? I've found a couple Foxes and SN-95s with this setup and it looks pretty tight, but I haven't come across an S197s.
4) Can I only lower the front end (even with lowering springs) without completely screwing up the rest of the suspension?

Thanks in advance!!-Rob

By the way, before someone says "check the other forums" just know that I have and they don't seem to have the answers I'm looking for

09 Mustang 4.0. Too much to write down. Looks and sounds like a GT500 for half the cost and a quarter of the horsepower!! Currently working on a junkyard turbo build and an 8.8 rear end swap.
