Default Just making sure

I own a 2011 NA Impreza 4 door, and I've been wanting to do a few mods. I've been searching for coilovers and decided that these are the ones I want: http://www.subaruwrxparts.com/shop/p...IDCategory=136 (they fit 2008-2010 wrx/2.5i). They have a lot of great reviews on almost every forum and unless I'm missing something, they should work on my 2011 impreza. Also, I ordered this: http://www.rallysportdirect.com/Whit...0mm-Adjustable which should also fit. Finally, I was looking at these wheels because they fit what I'm looking for (17x8, gold, 8-10 spoke): http://www.wheeldude.com/catalog/pro...roducts_id=351 and they have almost the same offset as the wheels I have right now (+48). They will be wrapped in either 225 or 235/45 hankooks.

Here are my questions:

1. In what order should I put these parts on, or all at once? I heard you should let the coilovers settle before you get an alignment. Would it be best to put the wheels on first? I will tolerate the wheel gap if its the right thing to do
2. I don't plan on slamming my car, but I would like to get at least a 2 inch drop from stock height. Will I need fender work to run those wheels at that height? They won't poke (I prefer the tucked look ) but I think it may be close with 235s.
3. Are there any problems with what I'm planning? All I've bought so far is the sway bar because they are in high demand (it doesn't ship until september!) so its not too late.
