What suspension are you running? If I were you I would get struts, springs, and sways before Boost.

suspension? what to do next is kind of comes down to what you want out of you car. Track time, cruising, showing, its all up to you- What do you have in the car now?

Then if you plan on boosting, the smartest thing to do would be to Upgrade your handling first. You can either do coilovers or a spring and strut combo. Uprgade your sways as well. Whats the point of boost if you can handle a turn. Your car will be all over the place with boost and stock suspension.

Go for Koni struts and Eibach prokit springs. If you are tight on money then go with Tockico Illumina struts instead. Both of these are adjustable struts. As far as sways go I would go with either Hotchkis or Eibach.

The prokit will drop you only 1 inch. It will give you the best clearance with a body kit. If you go with the koni struts there is a lower perch that you can set it at which will add another half inch or so to the drop.
