I know that the IRS is considered to be the best but then best at what..I stick with the 5link or as I say a 4link with panhard because I understand those a bit better..If this were mine to do and I were to do a Mustang I would go with the 4 link panhard bar setup myself, Now if my base car came with an IRS then it may be best to stay with that.
One of the tech issues is how much HP are you contemplating as the solid axles are much stronger and the tires stay vertical and if you know the tricks the tires can be cambered a bit in one of those.

Shocks and springs get to be an issue as those need to be tuned to fit the car and driver setup so plan on doing that tuning when you get to that point.

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
