Default Getting RCE yellows....what else do I need?

What other parts should I get, along with these springs, to maintain proper geometry? 2018 WRX.

Don't need anything else for a fun street car. Rear LCAs are nice to have to get alignment perfect.

Just get a good alignment and add some front negative camber and have fun!

I'd look at any other little bolt-on upgrades that also require an alignment; simply as a two birds with one stone scenario.

For instance, I did steering rack bushings and Whiteline ball-joint relocation kit with my Feal struts and REC yellows.

On my 18 STI I had to get rear LCA and Toe arms to get the rear alignment to where it wouldn't eat through tires. I don't have RCE yellows, but my drop is roughly the same. Actually a little less. Call Geoff at Cygnus Performance great guy and customer service he will get you all squared away.

We suggest getting SPC rear arms at a minimum to be able to adjust the rear alignment perfectly. Let us know if we can help with parts and installation.

With yellows rear camber will go from -2.0 stock to -2.3 give or take a tenth.
You can’t adjust rear camber stock. As long as you keep the toe near zero you won’t see appreciable extra tire wear.

On the front for camber stock you probably have -0.8. You’ll actually loose a tenth or two adding yellows but you can and should adjust to get as much as you can -1.3. Again keep the toe near zero and you’ll see no additional wear.

Think you've got a typo and meant to say "keep the toe near zero" which is good advice.
