Upper and lower rear control arms will help with reducing rear wheel hop, get adjustable ones if your serious about putting power down so you can adjust your pinion angle. A good quality set of front struts and rear shocks and good springs. I would also replace your front control arms as well. If you have the money I would suggest going with coil overs instead if the springs and struts. If your car is a stick I would upgrade your clutch and go with a lightweight aluminum flywheel and get an aluminum driveshaft to it helps cut down on rotational mass so your motor will rev alot faster. And a good tried and true method to keep your tires planted is an airbag in the right rear spring works wonders and it's a relatively cheap mod. And of course some nice sticky tires on the rear.

Re: what suspension parts to put power to ground??

I wish I knew more about suspension geometry. I would get an adjustable panhard bar. Coil overs, tubular A arms/control arms (lighter weight and stronger and some are adjustable), and like SSC182 said, light weight flywheel and driveshaft. Underdrive pullies and an electic fan also help when reducing parasitic drag. Relocate your battery to your trunk. This helps shift your center of gravity and will help in tracton.. it also puts more weight on the rear wheels. And of course.. fat sticky tires. Or... and I can't believe I'm saying this.. if you really want traction, get a giant big a$$ rear wing (although it'll probably only help at speeds over 75 mph). LOL

+1 or Steeda sells staged kits ranging from 1-3 I think. They total up to about $2300 once it's all said and done.
