If your current shocks and struts are good, I would upgrade to a more aggressive brake pad like Hawk HPS, subframe connectors, and add some front camber with some bolts or plates.

Nice, I would then look into camber bolts or plates to aid in turn in. Possibly sway bars and control arms next? I know it's not cheap, but some wider rims and tires would help tremendously.

First: Full length sub frame connectors ((welded) Professionally ), 3 point strut brace, 2 point welded shock brace (skip rear brace if a roll cage is in order =D ), PolyUrethane Bushings for All! Convertible or solid Motor mounts

Second: Larger lighter control arms front and rear (skip rear if you're going Panhardbar/Torque arm), Larger sway bars. Lowering springs(progressive rate)/Adjustable Shock/Struts, Bumpsteer kit.

Third: Full coilovers, 17x8in front 17x9in rear tires, Roll Cage, Torque Box reinforcement, weight reduction, 4 point k-member brace or Tubular K-member.

im sure i missed stuff was distracted
