The major thing (I've done 2" drop) is going over speed bumps slowly.

Otherwise, if approaching fast you'll bottom out on top of the speed bump and smack the front spoiler on the ground as the front end settles after the speed bump. Going slowly [< 25mph over humps, and slower over the steep parking lot versions] is the key to avoid scraping or damaging a car.

Approaching / leaving driveways or parking lot aprons/approaches, go slowly and you'll clear them.

Pot holes - paying attention and avoiding them
- you can damage wheels, tire sidewalls and bend tie rods or control arms, tension rods or ball joints.
This applies to stock setups or lowered suspensions.

It is simply not possible to avoid potholes in Edmonton, at least in the spring. I won't take my stock height SRT there, I wouldn't go any lower if you actually have to live there.
