You shouldn't need anything else dude...Do you plan on keeping your stock shocks?

Get an alignment though!

Not really my frend.
You will need at list an alighment kit for the front. You can use Eibach alighment kit YOU CAN GET IT HERE.
Rear... You can use your stock camber plates or you can get Hotchkins kamber links $240... But it's not a big deal.
You can also change your shocks. Best shocks for Eibach sportline springs are Eibach or Tokico...
P.S.Just let you know that w/o an alighment kit on the front Alighment shop will not do the alighment.
P.P.S. And yeah you can get the Sportlines for $185 FROM www.MODACAR.COM

your right bro, of course an alignment is necessary - just thought that was obvious to anyone with plans for an aftermarket suspension

Just have a shop do it for you? Trust me, doing it yourself can be a pain in the ass. Plus, you still need a spring compressor and also a impact gun to do the job. You can do it yourself but it can be tough and dangerous without the right tools. Just to let you know, don't forget to get an alignment right after your done installing the springs. You don't need to get a set of shock's. Just replace them only when they're worn out. The stock one's will do just fine.

Spring and shocks installation is VERY easy... It's takes around 3 hours to change it all at home w/o any fancy tools...
Click here!
P.S.And do not do the aligment right after the installation let the springs to settle down for about a week and then do the alighment...

You can use an Aligment kit with any springs and shop will not do the aligment for you unless you have an aligment kit.
