Question with Moog End Links and Some Suspension

I am gathering up a cart with some suspension upgrades and not sure which part # is needed. i am putting them on a 2007 coupe LT and heres what im ordering as of tonight. Need some input and some feedback on whether or not this is a good daily driver with some stance setup. if any other suggestions would appreciate it. Also Going with some 17x8 wheels. Not sure on tires ect yet though. Thanks!

You'll want the shorter endlinks, otherwise looks good, just keep in mind you will be quite low and even speed bumps can become an issue, it'll suck if you see snow in the winter as well.

As far as the struts/ shocks go, those are correct. But yeah. Be ready for snow being a nuisance

If you purchase the shorter end links, you need the fe5 bar as far as I know.
