BC Coilovers...what OEM parts needed?

Hey guys! I am interested in picking some BC coilovers up for my car. I am wanting to buy new OEM pieces that are needed so I dont have to use old parts on new components. Do I need everything from #10 up, or just #10 and #15?? Thanks!

You do not need to have new strut mounts. That is just a big waste of money.

Why? Not a single one is a consumable/wear item.

Theyre $15, its not make or break. This way I can put the coilover together before I start working on the car and save some time. Plus I wont need a compressor, and if I ever need to go back to stock, just remove/install. No wasted time screwing around with assembly.

You dont need a spring compressor on this car.

There is almost zero tension on them. I held on to the ratchet and nut and the strut moves a couple inches max. Not necessary on these cars. I've worked on others that you'll shoot your eye out on, this is not one of them.
