3] Replacement bushes? As I'm pulling this all apart it makes sense to replace all of these.
3] Strut braces and anti roll bars?
1)You can certainly get away with the 'stock' brakes. I would run PFC01's, Castrol SRF brake fluid, and some 3" ducting.
2) Adjustable coilover, depending on your experience and budget will determine which.
3)Yes, with sphericals or solid if possible, depending on the location.
4)You can get by without a strut brace, yes to adjustable sway bars.

I would also upgrade the oil pump to keep the nut from backing off or the shaft failing, and add an oil pan baffle. There's a lot of other stuff I would recommend if you're interested...
