Ford Focus ST suspension setup

Hi guys, first post here!
Was thinking of getting doing a complete overhaul of my focus ST '06.

The shopping list:
1) Bilstein B8 shocks
2) Eibach prokit lowering springs
3) Front strut bearings
4) Whiteline rear antiroll bar
5) Powerflex poly bushes all round
- Front lower wishbone front bush
- Front lower wishbone rear bush
- Front antiroll bar to chassis bush
- Rear track control arm outer bush
- Rear track control arm inner bush
- Rear upper trailing arm bush
- Rear lower trailing arm bush
- Lower engine mount insert
- Lower engine mount small bush

Has anyone gone with this setup? If so is the car liveable on a daily basis?
Also, anything I've missed out?

Cheers and TIA

Looks like your good. Whiteline sway bars easier to get over there? Nothing wrong w/ whiteline, as they make Subi parts. Try a Eibach 25mm rear bar. And since your replacing your front sb bushings, I'd add a 22mm front eibach sway bar also.

Actually I'm ordering them over demon tweeks, they don't seem to have a front anti roll bar tho. I thought these cars came with front anti roll bars as standard. Imma have a look underneath when I get the chance.
