Well your off to a good start. If your going to do the shocks and springs you should think about doing all the bushes as well. I have just done the rear ones on mine as well as the shocks. As soon as the front bushes and shocks turn up I will be starting on doing them as well

P.S there's some links on my build thread on the bushes I used and there prices


All the best
