Suspension pre-assembly question

I have finally pulled the trigger and decided to start doing my suspension mods. I will be installing Tokico HTS shocks with Tein S.Tech springs with my new rims and tires. A bit later I will be doing front and rear TL-S sway bars, adj. front upper control arms, poly LCA compliance bushings, and rear adjustable control arms/links along with new base components (tie rods, sb links, etc...). In the interest of saving install time and minimizing down time on the car I would like to pre-assemble the shocks and springs and would like to know exactly what components I will need to purchase and what I can replace from the assembly during the installation. I'm under the assumption that I will need everything from the diagrams minus the shock and spring. Ideally, I will be creating a "coilover" so I can just do an R&I. Thanks.

I was using konis and the bump stop washers that go on the top/bottom of the dust cover didn't fit the thicker shock shaft (ha). I don't think the dust covers r even necessary.
