Is it a dedicated track car or do you drive it to work every day?

You can get lower with coilovers, http://www.andysautosport.com/chevro...c01019019.html

Or you can drop it to the ground on bags

If you go to low it can mess with your suspension.

coilovers if you wanna go lower than springs and still be able to handle. Make sure you increase spring rates as you go lower so you don't bottom out.

There is 2 inch drop springs which are what I am running.. The ride is the same as a 1.5 drop I just wanted it a little lower. If you are looking to go cheaper just replace your springs if you have a few thousand go with coils overs. Remember thou if you want to stick different rims an tire combos on go with 1.5 drop springs. It's cheap an easy to do..

I want to say BMR made them I had to do a lot of looking around for them I bought them an a lot of other things all at once so I could be wrong. But I'm almost positive BMR made them. Now that being said the one thing I am running into is I am trying to put a 20x11 rim with 315's on the rear an I am unsure if it will fit or even a 20x10 305 as well. So if you want a for sure thing. Go with the 1.5 drop an that way you can put a 305 or 315.. Or you can get that extra half inch like me an be in the same boat lol. Let me know what ya do if you go for 2 or not I wanna know what you manage to fit under there.

If you want to go lower than an inch you really need to consider coilovers. More than an inch will take the shocks and struts out of there normal travel range during normal driving and result in poor ride quality and premature failure. I have seen and replaced many o.e. shock and strut assy for that reason, including my own.
