The real success of installing a suspended ceiling is making sure that everything is level. This can be done with some inexpensive laser tools or levels that will shoot lines on the walls. You can then install your wall angles or wood molding underneath and right up to the lines, to assure that the ceiling will be level. It is best to allow about 4" of clearance from line to the bottom of the joist. This space can be smaller, but will make it a little more difficult to install the panels.
