If you are getting springs then the FIRST thing you'll need after you purchase them are new struts to properly take advantage of the spring rates and length of the new springs. Swaybars will definitely help with cornering (go with as large as possible in the front = GREAT turn in, and a medium to large one in the rear = keeps the rear planted) but they will not handle everything... Your stock struts will probably work fine for a while, but they will wear out alot quicker with higher spring rate springs. Granted, getting larger swaybars should help the stock struts from wearing out as much by controlling the spring movement slightly but really that is kinda a "side affect"... Start planning ahead for struts... Koni Yellows are AWESOME... Ohlins are expensive but also AWESOME...

Hope that helps out alittle
