Suspension work-arounds?

M planning on going through most of my suspension soon and for sure am getting Tokico D-spec shocks/struts and H&R SS lowering springs.. My question is if the Steeda X2 ballpoints and bumpsteer kit justify their high cost in respect to other kits? Also, for camber-caster plates should I have to get the expensive ones or is it just preference?

I am by no means a weekend warrior and I don't race or autocross my car and I don't drag it.

The drop will be roughly 2" front and 1.6" back. That's why I see the steeda parts as a necessity because cheaper parts don't hold those lowered dimensions as well, right?

Any opinions or experiences?

I had the steed balljoints and bump steer kit on my 94 cobra. It had about 1.75" drop. Made a huge difference to me. IMO, they are worth it

Plus 1. I wouldn't lower your car unless you do ball joints and a bump steer kit. Especially ball joints, they have probably
never been replaced.
