Personal preference do you want your car to sound better or look better first? I would personally go for the exhaust because its more expensive

Like I said, personal preference. Do you want your car to sound beast? Or do you want it to look aggressive? You can do springs yourself, exhaust you're probably gonna have to pay for installment

If you are going to get both then it doesn't really matter which you get first... I agree with 1slosix on the coin flip.

Springs won't be cheaper in the long run. If you decide to drop you will most likely need camber bolts at the minimum, cc plates would be better. You will also need an alignment if you rubber is still any good and wish to make it last. You may not need those if you do a small drop, which I would see no pointing doing then. It's also good to get new bushings, ball joints and a bump steer but those aren't necessary. If you still have the stock shocks they will blow out soon too. Seeing if looks like you got a v6 an exhaust might be expensive too, depending on the set up. If you plan on keeping the car if say springs. If you plan in upgrading then just throw a muffler on it.

I'm replacing the shocks and struts and the drop on the springs I'm getting are. 1.5 and 1 I think from what I read I wouldn't need anything besides an alignment which I will get... What in looking at is I could go ahead and get my springs or wait longer and get my exhaust put on

lowering springs is all you really need. ask 1slosix im positive he just has springs on if i remember correctly. but it's all in your perference.
