Honestly it looks like you've got more than what you need. Remember that Isolators don't have to be used if you wanna lower the car more. Adjustable outer tie rods are a must if you lower a car too much. Only thing missing is an alignment. sway bar end links and bushings are good upgrades as well if yours are relatively old. If its a high mileage car, I recommend replacing ball joints. Mine had a tendency to wear faster after I lowered the car.

I would say all you need is the springs, shocks and struts, and the plates.

I have my 86 lowered on 2.5 springs, but original shocks and struts, and it's OKAY, but if I hit the right bump, it WILL bottom out the shocks. I don't have too much camber problems, but my buddy has an 04 gt lowered 2 inches, and he needed the plates, it had way too much negative camber.

On a side note, anybody know how much more drop I'll get if I remove the isolators? It's an addiction. You can never get low enough..

I love the look of mine, but the ride quality is not as smooth. Its not a daily driver so I can deal with it.

I'd go coilovers and subframes.

Coilovers are adjustable which is great for whenever you want to hit it real low or raise it if your going places and know you'll bottom out.
