Upgrading SVT's suspension

Hey guys so my suspension is bad all around pretty sure it's never been changed at 181xxx mile marker. Figure it's time to replace all of it, my question with what? I've heard of using H&R springs with Koni yellows. Also want some better sway bars and new links, looking at a $1500 budget.turboing the car this spring so I want a good suspension set up for it!

You're on point with the suspension. Have you thought about upgrading the bushings to poly with that type of mileage?

H&R race springs and Konis are an awesome combo. I want to do the rear bushings but need the car daily.
