m-3000-zx3

Just ordered mine from amazon
most likely will be installing it in 2 weeks.
Now here's a few of the questions I have been having trouble finding info for.
New swaybar endlinks (the ones at auto parts stores all say
'except for svt") I have yet to find a unique pair for the svt.
It seems I will be needing new strut bearings and strut mounts as well.
Again I see nothing specific for svt, also the ford install manual does not mention strut cushions or boots?
I would just like to have everything I need before starting this project.
If I can get new strut mounts and all, would I be able to mount the springs
to the strut before taking it to the garage?

ok so I have found new strut mount/bearings anything else not included in the m-3000-zx3 kit that would be a good idea to replace.

Finally did this, purchased all new endlinks, the delrin rear shock washers, new strut mounts with bearings. Lemme tell you to do those washers to fit in the rear I had to cut away the rubberin the center of the rear mounts. the rear uppers were the most irritating part of the swap. I still have not put the interior back on to cover it up.
