Default Basic Suspension Upgrade for 98 V6 Camaro?

I just picked up my first Chevy, A 98 Camaro V6. Id like to build this car from the ground up. I already have the tires in check, now I need a good basic suspension upgrade.
Is it best to lower the car a bit or is the stock ride height optimal? Id like this car to handle as good (or better) than my previous Acura RSX.

We use Hotchkis springs and sway bars. Lower the car 1", firms it up nicely and the sway bars are awesome. You can step up a bit more and do rear control arms and strut brace also.

Here is a pic of our own 2000 WS6 TA with the full Hotchkis treatment

BTW, we still have 20% off Hotchkis products so a good deal is a better deal!
