I'm in need of help with my next mod!

So currently car has Bbk short tube headers, 1 piece driveshaft, borla S-type, Jlt cai and bmr upper lower control arms

Now, i have full suspension sitting in my closet: lowering springs, panhard, bumpsteer kit, caster camber plates, bmr upper control arm with mount.

I am not in a rush to lower but i do need new shocks and struts to finish my whole suspension.

I do not have a tune, sitting on 2.73 gears, stock midpipe, stock suspension.

What should be my first move? 3.73 with tuner? Midpipe with tuner? Or finish off my suspension.

^ +100. By all means finish the suspension. To be brutally honest I don't see this as a legitimate question. You have 80% of the parts already on hand to have a stellar suspension setup less the struts/shocks. You'll be kicking yourself down the road if you perform/pay for all the labor to get those lowering springs in only to find out the car is pathetically underdamped. A well setup suspension is different than literally all other mods, being that it is constantly at play whether you're accelerating, braking, in a corner, cruising, etc.

That said. If you're not ready to put the suspension in yet gears and a tune= lots of smiles.

I would finish the suspension then go for the 3.73 gears and a MPT tune
