Just use TIS. New bottom bolts and Loctite. Might as well get all new mounts etc.

Free online, search for TIS - it's the workshop manual.

Work out what the coilovers come with then buy new for the other bits. Doesn't look like front top mounts are needed, but rear possibly.

Seems I have everything except new front lower knuckle bolts :x Which are supposed to used only once?

Any idea what the part number is ?

Rear is done, just need to set height.

RealOEM will give you part numbers specific to your car, same as the dealers use, just pop in your VIN.
