I'm not to concerned with the way the car looks..I'm just looking for something performance wise so yea I'd say better cornering and a smooth ride is always a plus but not always a necessity

A good set of Monroe gas shocks will be fine for daily driving. a set of Bilsteins will really make a differance in handling.

a set of sway bars should help out in the cornering area as well

 Oh yeah!!! Makes a huge differance. The IROC front bar keeps the front planted on turns. Adding a "live" rear bar keeps the back on track as well.
