Mitsubishi 3000gt SL Suspension Upgrades

Witch Christmas rolling around the corner i feel its a good time to spend my saved up money on new suspension components! However i know little about suspension of cars mostly because i know its usually all fine tuned and "too stiff" is just as bad as not stiff enough. These are some cheap upgrades i have been thinking about. I'm getting new tires in the spring too which should also help with my handling.

New front sway bar
3SX / Addco Performance Swaybars - 3000GT / Stealth FWD*-*Mitsubishi 3000GT*/*Dodge Stealth Parts

Strut bars
Ultimate Performance Strut Bars- UNPOLISHED 3000GT/Stealth*-*Mitsubishi 3000GT*/*Dodge Stealth Parts

Springs
Vogtland Lowering Springs Non-Turbo 2WD/FWD 3000GT / Stealth*-*Mitsubishi 3000GT*/*Dodge Stealth Parts

Which should i get to get the best suspension performance? These are all from 3sx so i know they will work and they look like there is no tuning involved because they don't look adjustable but i was just curious to know will this help my cornering ability?

Note: i love driving on winding hill roads, i don't care as much of speed so that's why i would love to do my suspension. Also i don't want to buy new coil overs, that is too much money considering i have other things i need for my car as well.

Thanks! And Happy Holidays to everyone!

After reasearching i found no articles (that i found) about 3000gt swaybar upgrades. After more thinking i think i will just upgrade the springs and rear sway bar (car feels boaty) will that help or hurt me with the rear bar only upgraded? If not i will probably just upgrade the springs.

upgrading the rear sway-bar is a good idea to take out some of that sloppy feel to it ...also paired with a rear strut bar will really tighten it up.....so far i just have the strut bar in the rear and i really noticed a difference in cornering....but im running staggered wheels also

Best suspension performance? Thats a question almost as crazy as what oil to use! A good strut is the best. While many lower their cars that brings on a whole new world of problems. Controlling a heavy car AND have it ride comfortably are usually trade-offs. If your car still has OEM struts you will do good with almost any quality part.

Rear strut bar vs rear sway bar upgrade, which would be better? Sway bar is cheaper but idk what are your guy's thoughts.
