What kind of drop for bad roads?

I think its been posted a couple of times but I did a search and could not find the info I needed. Anyway here is my problem. Where I live the roads are really sh*tty and most driveways are not level with the street. I have a hard enough time not bottoming out or scraping my car at stock height. So what kind of drop springs should I get that would best suit my situation?

PS: I have stock rims now but I plan on getting some Performance 17's in the future.

You have no idea! My girl is ALWAYS complaining about bottoming her car out when she is driving. (she is a delivery driver for Pizza Hut). I've been with her a few times and she has scraped her car just backing out of dive ways.. She has a stock Mitsu Mirage. The roads around here are horrid
