Dang, quite the purchase! With that list you should be well on your way. Going to install it all yourself?

I highlighted the list of things you need in red, and blue that you don't if this is only for lowering a daily driver and you don't plan on corner carving.

Eibach pro system plus:front struts,rear shocks,pro kit lowering springs,35mm tubular front sway bar with bushings 3 way adjustable,22mm solid rear sway bar with bushings,steeda bumpster kit,j&m camber plates,j&m adjustable rear upper control arm,j&m rear lower control arms,ford racing front lower control arms with ball joints,j&m adjustable panhard rod

I also owned the J&M adjustable panhard bar, but I went with the aluminum one, do yourself a favor and skip that one and go for the steel bar. The aluminum one flexes under suspension compression.

You don't really need the bumpsteer kit but some people like to have it. The sway bars aren't needed either and I usually suggest those only after doing springs/shocks, that way you can decide if you really need to further correct any suspension problems like under or oversteer. If this is a daily driver and not a corner carver, the factory bars are fine. Also, the upper control arm isn't required unless you're using a one piece drive shaft, and there are ways around that.

Just a little helpful info if you're only interested in getting it lowered and getting some items like camber and rear end centerness back on track.

Don't forget lca relocation brackets to improve the lca angle to prevent wheel hop and improve hard straight launches

another question so I ordered those parts and the eibach pro system did not come yet but all other parts did....I recently got my car inspected and was told I need ball joints...so I went and ordered new ford racing front lower control arms with ball joints.... My question is since I have the front control arms and bumpster kit before my lowering spring kit can I have have the front control arms and bumpsteer kit installed before having the car lowered????

How long is the wait? I personally would do it all together and get it aligned together.

+1 You'd be paying for someone to align it twice and rip up the front end twice, which ends up being more time spent at the shop too.

the wait is 2-4 weeks for the eibach kit bc American muscle said they do drop shipping and eibach custom orders....I also have a lifetime wheel alignment I just got last week....should I wait a few weeks still ??

You're still doubling the labor on the front end work almost. Also make sure that the lifetime alignments don't have an exception for your "performance parts" changes.
There is a brake shop here that sells lifetime brakes, but it's pads and or shoes, but when you take it in, they find bad caliper seals or bad wheel cylinders or overcharge for turning rotors or for additional fluid, etc.
