Help Lowering Please

Sorry I'm a newbie in the suspension department. Just changed from 22's to MMR M228 20's.Car needs a bit of an altitude adjustment now. Nothing crazy as its my daily driver as wel as low 11's on track days (With completely different wheel & tire setup). Looking for ideas to achieve my goals. Thanks for the help!

1" drop springs are the cheapest way to obtain the "look". If you don't want to gain negative camber above the factory setting in the rear you might also want the LCA for lowered vehicles to get that adjustability back. Beyond spring change , you begin down the path of coil overs and how much you want to spend ... and on whether you want the looks or actual performance or something in between.

Thanks for the suggestions. Since I'm more into 1/4 mile than road course, the 1" drop springs sound like the best route for me. Again sorry newbie at suspension, whats the LCA?
Any suggestions on brand?
Thanks
Tom

LCA = lower control arm

Thee are a few manufactures out there. BMR makes a set for lowered cars that is relatively affordable.
