Skynet, instead of using drop springs, have you considered doing the Shelby mod? That would make your car roll less, handle better, *and* give you something close to the drop you're looking for. (Since it varies a bit from car to car, it could be a little less than an inch of suspension drop, but then again, drop springs are sometimes not much lower than tired factory springs either)
Stock springs often give a much smoother, more progressive ride than newer, shorter, stiffer springs, and for a street car, they are frequently the best choice for ride quality.
With the money you save on springs, put in a stiffer swaybar to help your car corner even better. With that and the Shelby/Arning drop, you won't feel like you're driving a power boat anymore when you corner.
For shocks, depending on your budget, I'd go with KYB, Bilstein, or Koni. I have no idea about the Scott Drake shocks, so I can't offer advice there. Perhaps the reviews of their product would help you decide if it's worth gambling on.
With those three changes, I think you will be shocked at how much better your car rides and handles.
Oh! One last thing - have your car aligned for radial tires instead of the original factory recommended specs. That will also greatly help with handling and road feel.
