What is your budget?

Good cost effect upgrades include:

driving school
lower brace ($110)
proper maintenance
good alignment
good shocks, at shock replacement time
good tires at tire replacement time
springs, if you do your own work (about $300)
used dinan camber plates for the front ($150-$175)
used sway bars, if you do your own work ($220-$350)

Be very careful with suspension mods. Have a plan before you start. After market springs may wear out stock shocks, srings, shocks and anti-sway bars need to be matched, etc. Read and search the boards for limits and ideas of what works together and what does not. Ride / drive some modified cars. Almost EVER mod has a negative effect. Are you willing to live with the negative effect.
