Poly bushings for the lower control arm? Don't waste your time and $ on that...those things are a PITA and it will cost more to have them removed/installed that it's worth. Poly bushings for the motor mounts are nice add and are very easy to install.

As for the kit, you do not need anything at all. It comes with new nuts/bolts and bushings. You may want to rent a spring compressor but it is not absolutely necessary. I used a jack to remove/install the rear springs (jack between the lower control arm and frame) and just muscled the front springs on. It's very easy to do yourself and no instructions are needed, just remove/replace.
