Well, the functional reason is aerodynamics. With a degree or two of rake, you create some downforce without adding much drag.

The flipside is your corner-weights. Anytime you reduce the ride height of one corner relative to the others, you shift the resting weight of the car more to that corner. So, by dropping the front and leaving the rear alone, you're shifting weight more to the front... and the Mustang's already a front-heavy car.

Function > Form, always

Dave, do you have any problems with your front tires rubbing fenders? Or have the edge of the wheel rub the CO spring perch screw?

Funny I came across this thread, I was staring at my car from the side today and was thinking of just getting ball joints to lower the front vs. my original plan to get super sports. I'm gonna need new tires next season and want to get 18" wheels, plus ball joints, which would be cheaper than all the stuff I need to lower all around...but now you guys are making me reconsider that idea

For as much as I drive or my wife drives it, I don't care if it rides like a cheese grader being slid in and out of your bunghole.
