Any of the listed options in OP's post that has TUV? I need it in order to drive legally in my country. It's a nightmare to find out if they have TUV or not.

i think the front had more gaps from stock.

Do i need aftermarket camber kit for a moderate drop like 1.5"? or I can adjust camber with oem arms?

You don't need a camber kit for a 1.5" drop.

no. usually you can still get the alignment within spec but it wont be perfect, so they can be recommended.

Lowering back end

I just want to lower the back end on my 2003 GT which I believe has OEM suspension.

I'm not looking for an aggressive drop, just want the back end flush with the front end, so I'm not falling forward in my seat.

Do I need to replace just the springs or both springs and shocks...I know this is probably a stupid question, but I barely know how to change the oil in my car.

Can someone recommend what to buy and how much this will cost to have installed?

You should get the S tech springs. but most springs wont level out the car. you should consider adjusting your seat if you are falling forward in it. the knob on the side of the seat is the tilt adjustment. start there and then get springs

Imo it depends on how hard you plan to drive it and how your road conditions are. Most people tend to conclude they are trash , but Iíve had great experiences with mine. Granted my car is purely a daily driver and an occasional spirited drive, which even then Iím not pushing my car to the limit or anything.
