Controversial, but will give a big bang for the buck (maybe pun intended).
Look at offerings from ABT, MTM, APR, GIAC and others.

If you want to stiffen up the ride then this is a good move.  A favorite
seems to be H&R coilovers.

Not many possibilities if you keep the stock calipers and rotors, but
if you want to spend $$$ then the sky is the limit.  Stoptech makes
a good system, as do others.

Good upgrade to minimize engine/transmission rocking, gives better
shifts.  UUC makes one, and I am sure others do too.  Probably not
too much difference between brands.
