There are suspension upgrades and there are suspension upgrades. There are low cost suspension upgrades and there are expensive suspension upgrades. A bit more definition of your requirements would be helpful in forming an answer.
Do you want a track day car type suspension or an out and out racer type suspension?

ESM Morris can supply all the parts you require to upgrade the Minor suspension.
That is:-
Upgraded dampers for both front and rear.
Antiroll bar.
Lowering blocks for the rear.
Poly bushes for front and rear suspension..
Anti tramp bars.
Wider wheels.

The above are available from other suppliers.

You can lower the front by moving the lower suspension arm one spline around the torsion bar.
Negative camber eye bolts are no longer available unless you make them.
Morris Marina stiffer torsion bars (20.6mm dia) can be fitted provided you can find them and you can obtain the Owen Burton adapters or a pair of modified Marina eye bolt pins.

You might still be able to get negative camber eyebolts from Minor Mania in Mill Hill - I bought some a couple of years ago, they had several sets left but weren't advertising they had them...
