Brand new to suspension. Need advice please

Okay, so i'm very new to the car world. (2011 v6 2LT) I feel like i've learned a lot in the bolt-on section, but have never had ANY experience with any type of suspension or anything, and have no idea where to begin. I started reading a few threads and quickly got very overwhelmed.

I am a handy guy. After reading a few threads i installed BBK long tube headers, Injen long tube CAI, an IM isolator, and a few other things, so i'm all about doing an install myself on my car if it's practical.

Anyways. Could someone lead me in where to even start??? Or maybe even what really does what?? I am a younger guy and don't have too much to spend, but i'd love to do a few fun upgrades to my suspension, mostly because i ran out of bolts ons to do

I'm not any nascar racer or anything so i don't need to get into anything crazy with the car, but this forum is like crack to me, so if there is something i can bolt on right up and feel a sweet difference i'm all about it.

Thanks for your time and input in advance.
