First suspension mod i should do

I just purchased my second mustang and can't wait to start tinkering with it. I bought a 97 gt 5 Spd. While there are tons of ideas running through my head on adding more power, I must say the handling is pretty bad. What should be the first mod I make to the suspension to start correcting the flawed suspension.

Well lowering springs are always a great way to go. Are you looking for a tighter feel in turns or what?

There may be some worn out components in your suspension... There is on mine.

I'd start with that and then start thinking about mods.

Rip it all out and install all new stuff. Subframes are mandatory and the very first thing you should do to answer your question.
