what year car man? If it's what I think......well let me ask....are you using your OE (stock) Struts/Shocks? Plates of course are the heat nut they will heat your wallet too. How much drop were the springs? You using CC bolts for now? Post some more info.

CC plates replace strut mounts, with that said I would replace the dampers anyways because with the car lowered the stock dampers are going to wear out much faster. I replaced my stock dampers at 42k miles and had the car lowered for about 20k. I now have Koni strt on there and after driving the car a few times it is very clear that the stock dampers were so worn out that I was riding on just the springs.

The stock dampers were designed to ride at the stock height and nothing less. Do yourself a favor and replace them now, don't be like me and wait lol.

Also I recommend lca relo brackets

Slotted the front was not a smooth move. Need to put that PH bar on. You don't need coil-overs. As Grabberblue50 said the STR.T is great for the money. If you want alot out of the car I would strongly consider the yellow sports which are adjustable. Especially with you habving a 2'' drop in the rear.Alot of drop and the str.t is not really that great. 1.5 and 2 in the rear is a pretty strong good amount of drop.I also agree with relocation brackets. With that drop in rear I would be looking at UCA as well.Get your pinion angle correct.

The front has to have them it is the only shocks they are for the front is coil overs bc that's what they are I would just have to put the spring on it right

And slotting the front is better than camber bolts bc the camber bolts are about twice as small as the stock bolts
