Going 1 1/2 inches you will need the negative wedge kit. Go to www.themustangshop.com then to How-to and read there lowering the upper control arm kit 1 inch. I did that on my 68 Fairlane and it was a major improvement in handling. It has a template to copy onto a piece of metal, bolt it in place of the stock upper arm holes, and center punch and drill the new hole to 17/32 or something. My car wandered before I did the lowering, and it is just awesome now, worth taking a look.

The traditional way to do it is lower them
1" down and and 1/8" towards the rear. The negative wedge kit is not required for the 1" drop. If you were to lower the upper arm
further you would need the negative wedge kit
to keep you upper ball joints from binding during extreme suspension movement. Here's a link to the template http://home.attbi.com/~dciab/pics/shelbyaarm.jpg
