Suspension & Brake Questions/Suggestions

My brakes are overdue for an upgrade/service and my shocks are 20 years old and near dead.

So I'm looking to upgrade my brake and suspension.
I'm clueless on brakes (Open to suggestions, Just looking for a bit more stopping power)

But for suspension, I'm thinking something from BCracing, strut tower brace, and new sway bars (But still open to suggestions)

I'm just trying to make the car a tiny bit better to drive. Mind you, It's still a blast to drive. i just think there can be a few improvements.

If your goal for the car is street, then OEM rotors with OEM pads will do. Clickable does Zimmerman rotors + pads. If you want some better pads, get better pads like Hawk HPS, Remsa.

Or if you're a dumbass like me that likes to throw money away, big brakes.

Re: suspension - I would just get coilovers. BC Racing is good if you're about that low life. Sway bars are always good, strut brace not always necessary but good to have nonetheless.
