Question wanting to lower the 6er

So I am currently at lincoln tech in hartford and the speed bumps around here can be pretty harch height wise. My car is sitting at stock height with all stock components. It hits the lower cats if i dont go super slow and also hits my exhaust tips coming out the back (true dual flowmasters). Is it possible that the springs or shocks are getting weak for being 10 years old and causes it to drop so fast and does lowering the car stiffen up the suspention alot? If I lower it would i need caster/camber plates to get the correct alignment? Whould I need to get new shocks along with the springs because I have heard of them blowing out from a car being lowered on stock shocks?

1973 Mustang coup:(in progress)
New ginger interior
Rebuilt 302 and c4
Flowtech headers
2.5in exaust w/flowmaster 40's

If you are bottoming out because of the bounce, that is shocks. If you are scraping due to it being so low, that is springs.....

If you lower the front less than an inch, it does not need CC plates.......
