    Polybushes front and rear, polybush ARB, adjust your coilovers properly and that should do the trick

    Mark - the OP has a Vert so the underside cross brace comes as standard

    As sham has said X brace is stock, you cant fit a rear shock brace because the mounts are in the roof cover, i would say the only think you can do is front strut brace and eibach anti-roll bars that should help
