The SVT kit you're getting will have shocks, springs and rear sway. Additional parts definitely worth getting would be front strut mounts and bearings.

Seeing that you from the land of rust you'll probably have a hard time with the removal of the rear control arm bolts. If that's the case, you should plan on replacing the control arms as well. At that mileage the existing bushings are probably bad anyway and new ones come preinstalled in new arms.

I'd also consider getting new front sway bar end links. If your car doesn't presently have a rear sway bar or have the mounts for one on the cross member, you may need an aftermarket sway bar install kit (mounts, bushings and end links).
