Grabbing traction?

Okay. I need traction. I'm going to be going 17x10.5 charcoal bullitt's and 335s in the rear. The car has Eibach 1" drop all the way around. Traction sucks. It is sloppy when fish-tailing. Crossed 2 lanes of traffic sliding completely sideways. It has stock suspension all the way around, which has never been replaced. Burnouts don't last very long. They break and fishtail. Let the opinions flow. I'm not going for accessories, I need nescessities.

Thanks

HOLY MOLY BATMAN!! What exactly would that kit help me achieve? That is expensive. Would it make it safer to drive and more stable? First things, first. Thanks.
