Shelby drop on a 1966 Coupe

I hope someone will be able to give me some good advice ..... I am upgrading my front brakes to discs and decided to install new upper and lower control arms and all new bushings up front. I received some good advice on doing a "shelby drop" on the upper control arms. The only thing that is stopping me is that I already purchased coil springs that will drop the stock height 1". My question is will the "shelby drop" drop my front end another 1"? I dropped the rear of the car 1" by installing mideye leaf springs and I dont want the front end to be too low for some decent size wheels. any help please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Shelby drop is really just changing the angle of the control arm for alignment and handling purposes. It only very slightly lowers the car at all. Maybe 1\4 inch.
