What else should I replace while I'm replacing my shocks/stuts?

So I bought some Tein coilovers because my suspension has been shot for quite some time. Then I figured I might as well buy a Megan strut bar set. Now that I'm about to install them I was wondering what else I should be replacing in the process. One of the things I keep hearing about are urethane bushings. I see a lot of people on the forums who are using Energy Suspension urethane bushings, and I'm guessing that I need a master bushing set. I was wondering where a good place to purchase this would be and what else I should be replacing in the process of installing my new struts/shocks and strut bars.

I'd also reccommend a rear sway bar if you plan on doing it all at the same time. And pics when you're done

Bushings if they're worn out.

I'm about to do the same thing, summer term at college set me back but I plan on ordering all the stuff as soon as possible. I would go ahead and replace the strut mounts also along with the bushings.

Yeah, Energy Suspension doesn't actually make one for the 5th gen base. I even e-mailed them to ask why there was one for the SH and not for the base and they simply told me they just don't make one. /sigh
