which would be better handling wise uca drop or spindles ?
both lower the center of gravity so they should have simmilar effect ?

there two completly differnt things. the shelby drop lowers the cars roll centre whilst also making a more aggresive camber curve, drop spindles lower the car without changing the control arm geometry

if you just re drill the holes for shelby drop then the ball joint will bind, you don't want that
Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you.

you can ... the good thing with them is that you retain suspension travel so you don't hit the bumpstops

The Shelby drop won't lower your suspension noticeably but it will fix your camber curve to stop the inside edge of your tyres wearing. You will need to do it with springs, top shock mount spacers (or short shocks) and bumpstop redesign.  Attached File  Ford SVO bumpstop conversion..jpg   78.12KB   0 downloads
