where to start in a suspension upgrade?

I recently aquired a 1990 GMC S15, 2wd, which considering it has almost 300,000 miles, is in pretty good shape and actually passed inspection. However, the suspension in both the front and rear is pretty mushy. When I go over a bump or hole, it is pretty harsh. I do not have anti-sway on either end. Does anyone have any advise on what to start with, to bring things back to a more stable state, or a more modern state. The ride height is fine, but should I do new leafs, springs, bushings, add anti sway, upgrade shocks......Thanks for any help.

From my research the KW V3's are a great way to go, thats the route i'm going to go some time soon.

Call Jegs or Summit and ask about the Hi Energy suspension parts...Replace all the bushings of the cab and bed,,if the truck is in the condition you say it's worth $300 and a weekend on jack stands....Get the urethene parts.....
