I ordered from IE today:

Stage 1 springs

22/22 sway bars

Urethane front and rear bushings

Strut bearings

Fixed camber plates

Bilstein Sports F/R

Rear subframe mount and inserts

Urethane steering coupler

BBS "RX" style wheels, 15x7 (have new Kumho Ecsta 195/50 waiting for wheels)

Wheel spacers

Lugs for wheels

On Monday I'm ordering the header and center resonator from Top End (just installed Ansa Sport 2 weeks ago and decided to finish the exhaust completely).

I can't wait to get the parts. I'm taking two days off from work toward the end of May so I can have a 4 day weekend to do all the suspension stuff. I feel like a kid before Christmas.

Buy some ball joints to add to the rebuild.

Start spraying PB blaster on every nut and bolt now.

Do you have a plan for the brakes?

Ball joints and most of the suspension arms are new, done by thy PO. Some of them even still have the ID stickers on them.

Great point, need to start spraying now.

IMHO the stock tii brakes are pretty well matched to the power the car has. I'm not really planning, at this point at least, to change them unless I add more power or start tracking it on a regular basis.

I promise to post pictures of progress!!

Make sure you post pics!!! I was going to go with those wheels, but the offset makes me think they wont fit the fenders of a lowered car without at least rolling the fenders.
