I'd get lower control arms and relocation brackets if you are going to lower it. the adj panhard bar is good to get. If you want to spend that much I'd say go for it.
If it were me, I'd just get the LCA's w relo brackets, upper control arms, adj panhard bar, springs, front sway bar and rear sway bar.

A lot of those parts aren't necessary. You would be spending your money foolishly. What are you trying to get out of the car?

I would start with some good springs and an adjustable panhard bar. The stock shocks and struts aren't horrible. An adjustable upper control arm and mount as well. Sway bars aren't necessary.

Everything grabber said

If you are set on some shocks/ struts and don't want to break the bank go with koni oranges.
Or yellows if you don't mind the $$

That or just get the roush suspension pack and call it a day.

I recommend the JPC UCA. I run it and its flawless. But my car is not set up for handling either

I also have BMR sway bars and pan hard bar and I love em. On my old ride (sti) I did the suspensions & handling upgrades with whiteline products and they looked top quality and performed like one.

If you're not focus on drag/track these aren't necesarily since these greatly reduce your wheel hop when u r launching.

I'll also go with what grabberblue recommended.

Stranoparts has a sale going on until the end of May on their sets of suspension kits. I believe it is 895 for Steeda sport springs and Koni Yellows which is a great deal.

Like the guys said above, I think you would be better served to buy some upgrades alacarte opposed to one group of those parts. Steeda, BMR, Eibach, UPR, SR, all great parts.
If you are looking stance and handling and not tracking the car, you cant go wrong with Koni Orange shocks/struts, Eibach adj Panhard bar, SR or Eibach lowering springs, BMR lca & uca. I think you will be ok with the stock sway bars if you are not auto crossing. Those parts will make a HUGE difference in your cars looks and performance.

You do not need camber bolts if you're using the GT500 strut mounts. And I would go with the BMR springs.

Are BMR Springs better that Steeda? Why BMR?
