As stated, the tires are going to make the biggest difference. Simply swapping from the all weather to summer series will be a huge change. The biggest handling issue that I had with the stock mustang GT suspension was with body roll, dive, and the horrible tendency to understeer.
This can largely be fixed with a good set of shocks. I swapped Koni Yellows into mine, took it out to an improvised skid pad and dialed it in on the new tires. Makes a WORLD of difference.
I was envisioning having to change the front or rear sway bar but I am holding off for now.
The overall characteristics are very well balanced now and I am leaving it alone.

For the record, these changes can be made while remaining in F-Stock SCCA class.

That is correct.

The stock spring rates are actually not bad. The problem is that the stock shocks are way too soft. Great for road trips and that Cadillac feel, not so great for autocross or road racing type applications. The Koni Yellows on the softest setting are much more positive and help a TON.
I run them like that for daily driving and they are just fine. At the track I have settings that are a lot harder. It is possible to go too hard though and the spring will not be able to return to its neutral position fast enough if you tighten these down too much. The trick is finding that line or going to different rate springs.
