Lightbulb Suspension Upgrades

As many of you know/have said the chassis of the Mazda 6 is really good and holds up even in spirited and track driving. I was just wondering which areas can be upgraded and improved over stock. So far I only have front strut tower bar (kind of a suspension upgrade) and rear sway bar upgraded. The stock endlinks are holding up fine, but if they make a significant difference I am definitely up to changing them out to the Moog ones. Anyways, what other areas in the suspension need work/can be modified to become stiffer?

Here's some items that will stiffen things up. The rear anti sway bar is the one we have on the car. Very happy with their product.

Thanks for the link! They have really cool products, one in particular stood out to me. The interior floor bar seems cool, but would that even do anything besides look cool LOL?

It’s hard to have a conversation about handling and not talk about shocks and struts. Are you lowered already?

I am not yet, I've been wondering which coils I should get. I want something that won't decrease ride quality just the ride height.

For what you're asking for the best bang for the buck would be the Tanabe lowering springs.

Will lower 1.5"
Ride is better
Handling is better
Car looks better lowered (IMO)

It's what is on our 6 and many others here on this site.
