The biggest complaint I hear from people who go solid is that they transfer all the diff noise into the cabin.

Well, how fast do you want to go?

If I had 5k to burn I'd do maintenance first, then get an intake, coilovers, exhaust and a header.

I'd rather drive a slow car fast than drive a fast car slow

Go to a shop and have them look at the suspension. I'd bet that you probably broke a swaybar endlink for sure, but you could've also bent a control arm or just damaged a balljoint as well

I don't think you need to worry about a manual trans or diff cooler unless you were building a full blown track car.

If you're auto, then yes you WILL need a trans cooler.

You said a couple track days and drift events.
