Roush springs claim to be just 1" drop all the way around.

speaking from experience you need convertible specific springs. Our cars due to the extra weight naturally just sit lower. When my car was on the stock size Brembos it would scrape cuz it was so low on my FRPP K-Springs. I later changed the 255/40R19 to a 275/40R19 which was obviously slightly taller, and the scraping went away. Try a taller. As is a brembo car has the lowest tire diameter of everything offered in this generation Mustang.

This is a most recent picture of the rear tires on the stock wheels. I used it have it on 20's but it was not friendly with the potholes, so it's back to stock.

Still looks pretty low.
I actually just ordered 2 nitto 555 255/45/18 for fronts which is the same as factory diameter
And 2 nitto 555R 305/40/18 for rears which is about 0.7" taller than factory diameter.
I hope this fixes it. I didnt want to go with wider tires than 255 in the front.

You may have your answer already, but thought I'd pass along that my son had the exact same issue with his Eibach upgrade on his 2011 5.0 convertible. The rear ride height was of particular concern. Since many other options looked like we'd have the same problem and we needed a solution, we simply reinstalled the stock rear springs. Left Eibach front springs in. We were concerned on handling, but no noticeable change. I was surprised, but he's also not racing the car. Ride height looks right and scraping and bottoming out pretty much gone. Car is running staggered tire set-up with 255/45/18 front and 285/40/18 rear. Hope this helps.

Thats cool. How obout the front end? That was my biggest concern. That the front end was too low.
