Additional parts needed to lower

I am about to lower my '11 GT with some h&r springs. 1.7" in front, 2.4" in rear. On previous models, this has really been the only equipment needed but I've read on here where with the new body style ('10+), you have to buy LCA relocation brackets and such. For those who have used springs to lower, what else is essential? Not looking to spend unnecessary money on things that would be helpful. I want simply the essential parts at the moment..

I lowered mine with the same springs and didn't need anything else. I just had it aligned, after a few weeks for it to settle, and camber was still spot on. You may want the GT500 strut mounts if your mileage is more than 5k. The stock mounts tend to fall apart if not new.

Adjustable panhard rod is a must to recenter rear axle, MAY need camber bolts as well

You don't have to have anything else, but an adjustable panhard bar may be in order if your rear end shifts too much. It's not very noticeable on the stock pizza cutters, but if you have decent sized tires on the rear it becomes more obvious. Adjustable control arms are also optional, and are used to correct the pinion angle and rear end geometry. Camber bolts or plates can be used in the front to correct for the negative camber you get when lowering. The negative camber won't hurt anything but your tires...

Lca relocation brackets are generally only used with solid LCAs btw.
