well in drop-d you just drop your low E string to D. But if you want to drop everystring then it depends on how many steps. idk what they are cause i never do it but im sure someone else will help

I think what you're trying to say is open D tuning...

Anyway.. drop D tuning... just tune the 6th string to D.
Just be sure that the other strings are correctly tuned as usual...
When you tune one string, this may release tension which may lead to the event you think it does not sound right

If you tune all the strings down one step then you just get standard one step down. If you do that then you can tune your low D down to a C.

agree...
If you play drop C the way you play drop D, it is natural that it sounds like shit. A matter of stability

don't know the real reason behind drop C tuning, I think it's meant for pickings or maybe some bass solos.
