    Hi and welcome

    As Rayd mentioned, a stiffer rear engine mount is a great start. The factory mount is quit soft and upgrading it will help your gear shifts and reduce engine movement when you put your foot down. Lots of good brands about; cp-e, Sure, TRZ, etc.

    Also better sway bars will help reduce lateral roll when cornering. On a FWD car it's best to do the rear sway bar first.

    You can also look at replacing the stock spring and shock setup. Heaps of different options here depending on what you're wanting to achieve and what your budget is.

    Hope this helps
