I'm going to tell you what I was told when I first started inquiring about doing Autocross and building a nice handling car:
Go to an autocross and drive it as is until you aren't the limiting factor anymore. Even on a stock car, your driving is going to be the major limiter at first no matter what parts you put on it. Go to a driving clinic offered by SCCA or similar organization and learn what oversteer/understeer/push/loose, etc feels like and what it means when the car does it. Then once you're no longer the limiting factor in the car, you'll be able to tell what you want the car to do better in specific terms and then exact advice can be given on how to make that happen.
That is, if you're really serious about making a car handle...... If you just want to take that turn a bit faster, get some shocks, struts, springs and tires and go have fun.
But when you want to learn how to really drive the car, take it to an autocross or road racing beginner's clinic. I don't care how well you THINK you can drive, you can't drive worth a crap when it comes to true handling.
