Suspension Refresh: Am I missing anything?

Alrighty, so I'm at 118k on my '13 FR-S and it's time for a suspension refresh. Car is mostly DD, but is going to be seeing increasingly more track time. Goal of the refresh is mostly to just make the car just feel new-ish again, while adding alignment adjustability and going for more of an OEM+ feel.

Shocks are being replaced with low mileage PP shocks w/ TRD springs and Raceseng camber plates. I'm also doing all the control arms (OEM, except the RLCAs which are SPC), bushings, tie rods/trailing arms, and hardware. Here's a list of everything I've gotten so far:



I ordered everything OEM, except the diff bushings are Whiteline, and am pretty sure I captured just about everything. The yellow highlighted parts are ones I've already bought. Ordering the STI subframe bushings today or tomorrow.

Anyone see anything I'm missing?

Do yourself a favor and order new top nuts and nuts and hardware and stuff.

I can't see the picture yet.

For even more OE feel i'd probably use Pedders excentric topmounts + camberbolts instead of camberplates.

I got a really good deal on the camber plates, which is why I went with them. The OEM+ setup is temporary, year or two, until it becomes a dedicated track car. I can deal with extra NVH from camber plates for that time.
