Default Any other Rear suspension needed?

I am in the process of a 12 bolt install (Along with other things) and I decided to do my rear suspension as well...almost 500 HP with a completely stock rear end and suspension was killing my times. anyways here is what I have so far

1. double adjustable QA1 rear shocks
2. BMR Heavy duty double adjustable LCAs
3. BMR adjustable short style Torque Arm with tunnel mount
4. BMR non-adjustable panhard rod
5. BMR Extreme Anti-roll sway bar

Anything else I need for the rear?

Also what about the front? I am completely stock up there

Just pull some weight out of the front for better weight transfer Then lets see the light under those front wheels!

Aerospace brakes, LPW ultimate 12 cover for the rear. The front is a whole new ballgame, start saving, and looking in the classifieds for lower a-arms, k-member, and QA1 shocks.

For future reference tubular upper a-arms are almost completely worthless, and save 1 pound on both sides. Spend the money elsewhere....
