2008 Suspension Capatabilities

I have a 2008 SES and looking to upgrade the suspension. I found some suspension packages but none that matched my year. Are there previous years that are compatible with the 2008 model?

I'm looking to get lowering springs, with that I'd imagine I would need new shocks and struts too? (I'm at 40k miles if that makes a difference?)
anti-sway bar for the rear
upper and lower front stress bars

Also on a side note because I hate how my wheels hop when I launch and shift into second I was looking at new engine mounts? I hear this is supposed to help? which ones/ how many do I need? would I be better off (cost wise) just buying tubular control arms??

Thanks

You'll need an Omni kit from massive to use pre 06 struts http://www.massivespeedsystem.com/_m.../i-252473.aspx
I've herd the lower brace helps with the wheel hop, I have one installed but can not confirm if it does or not
