Default how's this suspension setup?

I'm upgrading my suspension and this is what my plans are..

Current: H&R SS Lowering springs, X2 ball joints.

Soon to purchase: Bilstein HD Strut and Shock combo, MM Caster Camber Plates, MM Tapered stud bumpsteer kit, MM XL Subframe connectors. Rear sway bar(i have a 99 v6).

I'm just looking for some input if all of what I have listed will mesh well, mainly the springs and bilstein. I believe they will but I'm no expert. Let me know what you guys think. I know I should've went coil over but if I choose to swap over later I can use the Bilstein shocks and struts from what I read on MM.com

Add some MM solid aluminum steering rack bushings and shorter swaybar endlinks for some cheap but quality improvements. Other things to consider stiffer (poly) front control arm bushings, rear lower control arms.

MM HD LCA are some of the best, adjustable or not. You can get cheaper ones, some others I'm sure work just as good.

Do yourself a favor and leave the upper/ rear control arms alone, also don't run a panhard bar with the stock 4 link. Just stick to springs, sway bars and maybe lower control arms.
Unless you're going drag racing, the feel free to bind the rearend up as much as possible.
