Lower control arms, subframe connectors, good set of springs and shocks will go a long way. What really needs to be done and soccer can attest to this as he's said it a few times with his set up. Once you take out the upper control arms that are doing 2 jobs at once the car will track strait and grip the road like it was meant to. But to get rid of the uppers you need to look into better set ups like the Watts link or Panhard and T/A.
The reason our cars seems to spin so much regardless of what tire you out on "some tires are better then others" is that there is so much play and binding with the stock set up that the tires jolt causing them loose traction. That's also why it feels like the cars swings the back end around when you turn slightly because the body move over the rear axle by a good few inches.
