Default Updated suspension: 08 Mazda 3 GT

Looking for suggestions on struts, springs, sways and bushings. Desired end result is maintaining a near stock comfort level but with better cornering ability and a slightly more lowered stance (.5 to 1.0") . Would also prefer durability I don't plan on tracking or autocrossing it so nothing radical. The stock components are worn, especially the bushings. Car has 108K miles on it.

Also, if you have any suggestions on anything I should look into replacing on the car due to the mileage, please let me know. Seems to handle fine, and the engine is strong with no oil useage. Clutch and Trans seem outstanding. Front diff works well. Only issue besides the worn bushings is a CD player that likes to eat CD's and not return them. Oh well...new faceplate coming up I guess.

Thanks!
Scott
