Default Lowering Suspension and muffler

Well, I might be needing a new suspension for my 93 SSEi (well, want more than need) and I am looking for suggestions. Here is what I kinda would like out of it:

I am looking for a good, tight street performance suspension. Something that will reduce the body roll and make the car handle better in the turns. (there are numerous tight turns on my way to work and school) I also wouldn't mind a 1-1.5 inch drop either, but that isn't essential. What parts would you guys recommend (struts, springs, sway bars, etc) to achieve my desired results? I also would like to not spend a whole lot on it and might do it is stages. Thanks


Also, while on the topic of mods... what muffler/exhaust mods would you suggest? I'd like something decently loud, but not overbearing.

As far as I know I'm the only one with drop springs. I got them from Domestic Performance. Handling was improved dramatically.

And for a muffler you'd probably want to go with a Magnaflow.

I have been told magnaflow from a couple people. The only Borla ones i have heard have been on a 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited and a 02 5.3 chevy truck... both sound amazing.

As for the suspension, my goal is to get it so that I will be able to auto-X the car. Since I have the LTZ as my primary driver, I would like to set the suspension up for auto-X. As of yet I am still waiting on doing my first auto-X as the LTZ is in no shape for it and the SSEi still has that pesky issue of needing the bottom end still. Hopefully I can get everything researched, purchased and installed for next season.
