starting suspension upgrades

Hey everyone, I am looking for advice and opinions on where to start upgrading my suspension. I own a 2006 v6 daily driver and like to do the work myself, but little experience. I have most weekends off, a garage to work in, a jack and stands. The only suspension upgrade I have is a SR strut tower brace. Thanks for your time.

I was looking at the eibach sway bar kit. I have the pony package, which came with sway bars on, but imagine those would be muh better. Should I consider the same brand of lower control arms? Or would a different brand be alright?

That's what's up, is that something could be done in a day or weekend myself? And would I only need an alignment after? Thanks for your help

The koni's look good Grabber. I've also been thinking about the kits also, like the eibach pro kit plus. I don't make it to any kind of track, but I enjoy driving around and through country back roads which can be amazing tracks in themselves

Should I start small with rear lower control atns and a sway bar kit, or find the ride im looking for first with struts and springs and go from there?

I have nearly every simple bolt on suspension mod and if I had to redo it I would do the konis first in a heartbeat
