Performance springs to lower the center of gravity and firm up the supension.

Anti-Sway bars to prevent body roll.
Wider tires might help a tad...
Finally...a good one day drivers class at the closest track to you!

Rear sway bars and a front strut bar along with springs and shocks should cure the handling bugs.

Tire pressure is also very important. If the pressure in your rear tires is lower than your front tires, it causes understeer.

Got rice?

The best way to get rid of understeer in a front wheel drive car is to stiffen the rear and soften the front. The best way to do this is to put a larger sway bar on the rear. One of my friends has a Probe with a rear bar the size of a coke can and a front bar the size of a pencil. This makes the steering input a little slower but gets rid of understeer. What I did on my Scoupe, since no one has sway bars, I have 500lb Eibachs on the rear with the koni adjustable shocks. When I go autocross I turn the shocks to full stiff and run the rear tire pressure about 5 psi higher than the front. One last thing is that when you go to enter a corner get hard on the brakes just before you turn in so the weight is shifted to the front and it will stick better. The first autocross I went to with my new springs and shocks, I had Intrax and Tokicos, I lost the rear end three times.
