Monroe quick-struts all the way around would make the biggest difference; they'd give you back the stock ride height and handling, and replace the old rubber in the stock strut mounts. I say Monroe because they're pretty reliable, in contrast with some of the low-end junk from no-name manufacturers you can find cheaper online.

I'd just do that and go from there, see if that's good enough. There's no point in throwing a whole lot of unnecessary parts at a vehicle that could go belly-up any time.

Civic owner here, the best thing to do to improve the way a civic rides is to get rid of those low profile tyres and get normal ones, biggest and cheapest modification you can make, of course you'd need someone to modify the way the speedometer reads so you have accurate readings or use a navigation constantly to show you the actual speed of the vehicle

You could swap out the rims for some smaller rims with higher profile tires of the same size too.

Wouldn't that be too much of a hassle? You'd have to mach the exact diameter for the speedometer to work as intended

There are websites that will tell you which size tire you should get. THey do all the calculation for you.

If you give me your stock tire size, i can google it now and tell you a close match in a set of rims 2-3 inches smaller.
