Suspension and Steering

I would like to improve handling from stock (turbo look) configuration. Stock tires are 215/55/R16 front and 225/50/16 rear. The suspension seemed loose during AutoX event (my 1st) with considerable chasis movement from side to side when cornering. Seems like shocks would be in order. I'm also considering putting 225/50 in front and installing 245/45 in rear. Sound like best 1st and 2nd options? Some background: I suspect the previous owner hit a curb hard with right front tire. There's a slight flat spot on Fuch rim. Do you think torsion bar or sway bar may be damaged?
