lowering kit

I apologize if this is out there already, but I am looking to lowering my '97 SS with a decent kit. Do not want anything really radical or harsh. Seasonal cruiser for the good days, once in a while she will be abused on the 1320 but mostly a street car. Was looking to go no more than 1 1/2" drop. Thanks for any help. I have SLP sub frame connectors and a strut tower brace already installed. Also would there be any thing else you would do or recommend?

I'm a big fan of the LS1 EibachPro Kit (yes, even on LT cars) as they are progressive rate, and ride nice, very similar to the SLP Level 1 in terms of comfort, but a bit lower. Average drp is 1.3-1.5" on Iron block cars. If budget allows, a nice set of Bilsteins would be highly adviseable too, although OEM Decarbons will work fine if you're not a super aggressive driver. The LS pn is 3870.140.

Thanks I will look into this. That is the only option besides the second set of tires and rims that my car I believe did not come with. Oh well have to kill time and money some how right?
