Suspension checklist/advice

I recently bought a set of Eibach Sportline springs for about 150 bucks. I wanted to go with the prokits, but didnt want to spend extra for just a mild drop. From my understanding of what I have read, I will need to do the following on order to get my suspension upgraded correctly.

Purchase checklist:
New shocks, will be going with the eibach damper kit.
Adjustable panhard bar

Will I need an LCA and UCA for the front and rear of the car? (Still a bit confused).
Are camber plates necessary and if so will I need them for the front and rear?
Will I need to get a camber kit as well?
If I upgrade the tires to 18 or 19, will there be tire rubbing issues?

Thanks for your inputs.

UCA/LCA go in the rear. (There is 1 UCA & 2 LCAs) Make sure u also look into LCA relocation brackets since u will be lowered u will need them to correct the rear end geometry.
Caster camber plates are the same thing as a "camber kit" & they are for the front. They connect to the top of the struts. Some people go with just camber bolts instead of caster camber plates but they're known for being weaker than OEM so I would be cautious going that direction.
I would also look into Koni Orange shocks/struts. There known for being better than eibach & pretty economical.
