Hey there, and welcome. Not sure exactly what upgrade you're wondering about... There are a couple of ways to "drop" the car, and several spring sets available. Typically, when using lowering springs, your camber will change, not the caster. You'll want to compensate for that, depending on how low you go. To compensate you can use either "camber plates", or cam bolt(s). The plates are the better way to go, if you plan on making occasional adjustments. Since you didn't explain why you want to drop the car (looks, handling, etc.), it's tough to make any recommendations...
Do a search here on the forums, and you should have more info than you could ask for..
