What suspension are you looking to run exactly? If you just want to do coil overs or some struts and springs you don't need lateral links, control arms, or sway bars. The struts and springs in no way attach to the lateral links or control arms. If you're looking to run bigger sway bars you can just get WRX sway bars and keep your stock stuff. If you're heart set on going with all STI bits and pieces then yeah your list is right. Lateral links and control arms bolt right up, no modification necessary. I ran them on my wagon and they were cool I guess but for the $500 bucks plus the cost of completely redoing my sway bars and end links I might as well have not. You can still run just as aggressive of sway bars and any coil overs you want. They will make you more prone to rubbing too because they push the edge of your tire out more right where it hits. You'll need to roll or cut your fenders if you drop it much. I had to cut my fenders quite a bit and I ran 27mm front and rear bars to really stiffen it up and even then I rubbed a little.

They do make it look a lot better, though. The edge of your wheel will sit much more flush to your fender now.
