Wheels and tires make a huge difference on any rig. Stance is where its at... Get your self a 1" body lift and 1" shackles and a set of 31s with some 3.75 backspaced wheels.

Removing the track and sway bars made mine ride better..

Removing the track bars will greatly improve the ride. You can search the forum for the topic. It won't mess with the handling/safety. The sway bar removal will provide for more front axle articulation off road, and have minimal impact on road if you drive it like a jeep, not a mustang.
