Best bang for my buck

Im getting ready to do the suspension in my 70 lemans. i have about $800-900 to spend, and im wondering what would be the best bang for my buck. i want the car to perform well on the track as well as around corners. another concern i have is that my tires (275/60r15s) rub in the back when i hit bumps or take corners. I have been looking into coil overs up front, sway bars all around, then in the back a taller spring with a set of shocks... can anyone tell me a combo that worked for them? thanks!!

Raising the car up in the rear will NOT help it in the corners ... narrow the rear or get rims with less offset and lower the rear ... for better handling ...

What you'll need, stiffer springs front and rear, lowering the
car, front and rear, quality dampers, front and rear, larger
diameter wheels, front and rear, a reduction of weight on
the front, a watts link for the rear end, what you have now
is not performance oriented, better brakes as well...
