Time to overhaul the suspension, suggestions?

Hey guys, Im planning on doing my suspension/brakes very soon. I think ive decided on an H&R Touring cup kit, with rogue engineering rear shock mounts. What else should I be replacing now? Im currently at 98.5K and I would like to take care of anything else I should right now. A friend of mine told me I should also do a camber kit, and that it was pretty important and will help my handling a lot. I found this http://www.modbargains.com/product.a...MSE46CMBPLTFXD
and decided thats all I can afford to spend right now on something like that, I really don't see the need.

Also, as for brakes, im planning on running brembo OEs, but i need a good cost effective pad to buy, any help? Thanks

-Vin

For you suspension I would change the RSMs, RTABS, lower control arms and control arm bushings. You won't need a camber kit for the Cup Kit, it won't drop you low enough to need one.

For your brakes you could either get OEM pads, but if you don't mind sacrificing some of the bite for dust I'd suggest the Akebono Euro Ceramic pads that can be bought from TireRack. Almost up to OEM stopping power, but with none of the dust.
