Post Dropping 46 Ford Coupe

Has anyone ever used one of Speedway Motors dropped front crossmember? Essentially, it just moves the spring mounting point further up. Replaces the stocker. Curious to see how well it worked, and if the geomotry went south because of it.
Just picked up this coupe and am going the low buck nostalgia route, with some minor updates (electrical, tube shocks, etc)

A easier way to drop it is a dropped axle. A 4" dropped axle will drop the 46 2 inches. The stocker is already 2 inches dropped. You can reverse the eyes on the spring and drop the 46 1" more. Take out a few leaves of the spring for another inch.

For around $250 to $300 and some work....... you are 4 inches lower.
