I did springs, shocks, struts, upper and lower control arms, lca relo bracket, adj panhard bar and cam plates. There are a couple of very detailed threads in here that I used as my guide and have had no issues. Good luck

Of you want to do it right there's a lot of stuff to get lol, if you're just going for the look its real cheap to get springs and pan hard bar (that keeps the rear wheels aligned after a drop) but you'll lose performance off the line and eventually thing will wear out a lot faster

+1. I did all this as well. You will also need a adjustable UCA and new mount to correct your pinion angle after lowering. Save yourself time and do it right the first time. LCAs and brackets can wait until later if need be. The stockers will not hurt anything in the mean time, you just wont hook as well. I would recommend doing a UCA and mount before the LCAs. I did LCAs first and regret not doing the UCA first. after only 5k miles ended up blowing my pinion seal. Not sure if it was 100% because of the wrong pinion angle, but im sure it didnt help.

I thought it was the other way around... As per this link, LCA angle is 90% of the problem

You are correct. LCAs will throw off your angle as well. But obviously you need an adjustable UCA to correct it. Thats the only reason i recommend doing the UCA first. So you can set the angle right away, even with the stock LCAs, and then when you get LCAs and brackets, you can correct it again.
