Suspension mods... Let the planning begin

Ok, so it begins. Here's what I've got so far: eibach drag/launch springs, Lakewood 90/10s, Lakewood 50/50s, UPR chrome moly rear control arm kit. I was gonna get 15" darkstar rims but I think I'll get more bang for my buck doing suspension. Is there anything I'm missing? Thanks guys

The front runners, you need a spacer with these ones, I can't remember the size of the spacer but it's not a big one, but at 86 dollars a piece

Looks like you'll need a 1/4 spacer and sand down the calipers a little, I had to sand the rear brakes a little but only on one side

Looks really good man. I just found all the part numbers on another forum when I googled it. He used a 3/8" back spacer. I can get the wheels and the spacers for less than the price of 2 darkstars. I think I'm gonna get these and paint/powder coat them black like his. What size tires are you running? I'm figuring 165/80-15 and 275/60-15. Damn it I'm so stoked! **** I'm gonna be broke!! Lol

I'm Getting the front runners this winter, it will save like 50+ pounds all together, and that should at least be .1-.3 in the 1/4 cause it will launch better with less weight in the front
