Default front strut & springs suggestions for improved traction

I am looking into getting new springs and front struts for my car and was wondering what would be the best option for better traction, but keeping decent handling at the same time.

The car already has bilstein shocks in the rear, which it had when I bought it. I have also installed a steeda strut tower brace, maximum motorsport full length subframe connectors, and UPR lower control arms. However, car still gets terrible traction with my current setup so any suggestions would be great.

Im running bilstein/MM coilovers from and rear and they work great.

I had some UPR uppers/lowers in the rear but recently put in a MM torque arm/panhard bar setup. It gives a lot more traction. The car is putting down more power also and spins tires easier.

Be sure you get bilstiens up from to match the rear.
