New Owner. Advice and Recommendations?

Hello Family,

I'm new to the family/new owner of a 96 Impala w/low miles. I'd like some advice on what should be done first and foremost right after purchase and any suspension recommendations.

Mainly looking for superb handling at a decent price..I'd like to even the rear wheel as well. I did some research on the speed tech suspension set/kit but its way out of my price range lol
Is it possible to mix and match? Also; she sits a bit high and i'd like to lower her i little bit.

Thank you all in advance.

Check out Hotchkis. Front/rear sway bars, upper & lower (stock or extended length) control arms, lowering springs. You can buy the HD Bilstein shocks from or get the "modified" ones from Hotchkis

If your front end components are aging, Moog is a decent replacement for those

If doing the extended trailing arms thing to center the rear need a longer drive shaft although some don't do that. I am not one who subscribes to the center the rear wheel thing so maybe those who did do it can advise better on the extended DS thing
