decided to go with coilovers and would appreciate some info

I've decided I'm going with BC Racing coil overs on my 2LT. Whoever has had these for 2-3 years, I'd like to know if you still would have chosen this brand. Additionally, I would like to know if new sway bars are a MUST and if so, what brand is recommended? Also, beside the coil overs, what else do I need? I know an alignment right off the bat, but I've been reading about bushings as well. thanks!

Let me start off by saying I don't have coilovers, but I do have drop springs. I highly recommend the BMR sway bars though. Adjustable, fit the early model camaros, quality pieces, and they come in red or black. Timing the bushings from my understandings should be done anytime you change the suspension geometry, ie lowering the car. It's easy to do. My local shop didn't know what it meant, so they let us walk back there when the time came and walk them through the steps we read on the form.

My experience with upgrading to coilovers in general is that after I put them on I want the car to handle even better, so I end up upgrading sways anyway. Timing the bushings is necessary, but if you are looking to replace them, Whiteline just came out with a complete kit for the Camaro that includes the most commonly upgraded/replaced bushings.
