Missing Anything? Tips for This Build?

Yep, another one of these threads. Gonna tackle my suspension build in a few weeks. Here's the parts currently on the list:

• Steeda Ultra-Lite Springs (front 1.25", rear 1.5")
• Steeda Pro-Action Shocks and Struts
• Steeda Heavy Duty Upper Strut Mounts (1 degree adj.)
• J&M Adjustable Panhard Rod - Aluminum

• Steeda Upper Control Arm - Lowered (non-adj.)
• Steeda Chrome Moly Lower Control Arms (non-adj.)
• BMR Rear Lower Control Arm Relocation Brackets

• Steeda Bumpsteer Kit
• Steeda X5 Ball Joints

My father and I are going to attempt the installation at home on a weekend. Only concern right now is the ball joints. Any advice on those? Most importantly, thoughts on this build?

Rent a ball joint press from autozone and take your time. That's all the input I have. Haha

I would at least get the adjustable upper 3rd link so you have the ability of adjusting your pinion angle ! in steeda's instructions it tells you an exact length to achieve a proper angle..

I'm hoping the non adj. UCA I bought from Steeda (the one for lowered cars) will be good enough. Otherwise I don't understand why they would make it. I also got it for a steal. If it doesn't suffice I'll upgrade it down the road.

Got it all done (except the relo brackets) this weekend. Approximately 14 hour install time start to finish. Steeda's instructions (although didn't really need them) and quality is top notch. Went with Steeda adj. panhard bar instead of cheap J&M one.

Way more planted on the road. Very firm ride. Ride quality is absolutely excellent, better than stock. Steering response in my 2010 (before electronic steering in 2011) is a huge improvement. Braking is much more response, nose dive and squatting is 95% gone.

Damn BMR fabrications sent two LH relo brackets... Get your sh*t right BMR.
