Get a suspension first. This way you will know what size tires to go with. U don't want to get a new set of wheels only to have them rub when the suspension comes on. And get a whole kit or coilovers , don't go cheap and just get springs unless u want to blow out your shocks and struts.

Don't forget new mounts/bushings depending on your mileage
