06 wrx suspension

I want to make the suspension a bit better on my 06 wrx. as of right now its all stock, and i was just wondering some things that are relatively inexpensive that i could put on that would make big gains?

Sway bars and endlinks. Hands down best bang for the buck.

Well, you should be replacing your struts and tophats, but that's not really inexpensive. Down the line I'd recommend replacing as many of your suspension bushings as you can, though that's very expensive unless you do the labor yourself, in which case it's cheap.

Steering rack bushings made a huge difference to me. Just keep in mind that the more bushings you replace with poly/prothane may give you excess NVH.

Sway bars a will make a noticeable difference. I would still do struts 1st.
