Default Bad paint crack, 6.5 @ 111 on stock suspension

Ok, I knew it wouldn't be much longer before i would need to start doing some suspension mods, was hoping to hold off to shoot for 150mph in the 1/4 this year but if the car is gonna twist itself apart than i might as well start the mods... What should be done first? Subframe connectors? I have an 8 pt cage welded in the car and thought this would be enough. Only other mod that isn't factory under the car is the chassis ta, still have the 10 bolt.

That cage could use some modifications to help with torsion under load. More notably the rear section

What's the pic of? The rear bumper and 1/4 panel? If so it looks like they were painted over by someone and not done the correct way.
