Coilover Installation Parts

Hey guys, I'm going to be picking up a set of D2 coils here with 5000miles on them. When installing these I want to do it once and do it right, so what else should I be changing while installing these? They have front camber plates so I don't THINK I need top hats. As we'll the rsm's only have 5000 on them too. I was looking at getting the ecs install kit but not too sure if all of that is completely necessary. If someone could let me know the stuff I will/should need that would be great.

Thanks

For coilovers with camber plates I usually suggest; reinforcement plates, rear shock mounts, rear shock mount gaskets, and new rear reinforcement plates (LINK). The hardware is optional (the kits include it), if your hardware is heavily corroded picking up new nuts and bolts isn't a bad idea as I've had too many guys have to come back for hardware after stripping/breaking a corroded bolt.
