to do list... with timing belt

So pretty soon i will be ordering a bunch of parts from steve at tousley, and i need some advice before i go ahead with stuff.

I'm pretty mechanically inclined, should timing belt be pretty easy? I've heard that using the bar in a kit helps, but what baout just making marks for the cams and crank pulley to get them to line up again?

struts and shocks- ordering a kit of them, what bushings should i replace with them?

plugs and wires- ima check out the threads on here

brake pads and rotors- best brands? i just want a small step up over stock

slave cylinder- need one, hard to replace? or should i get shop to do it

idler pulley, water pump, ac compressor, alternator- gonna replace that when i do timing belt just to knock out rotating assembyl while im messing with it. Any tips when i go to do this?

what kind of tires do you guys like?
