Checklist for safe ride when getting eibach prokit??

I want to drop my car, while maintaining the best and safest ride possible....if i get these pro kits what will i need?

I'm guessing..
-camber kit
-struts
-i hope not shocks.....

Yep i've done a search and read through all the posts with keyword "eibach." I just want to be sure and stay on the safe side when i get the money to drop my car. I don't want to drive around with the occasional worry that my tires will blow soon any time or whatever disaster may occur...not fun to be on a rough ride and think that springs are causing it when it really isn't(could be the road)...or is it? Any input would be nice...I'm planning to save up a large some of cash to get everything all at once(rims,springs, whatever safety measures i need)

with pro kits you really don't need camber kit, struts etc...etc... Your looking at maybe a 1 inch drop. Now unless you live in a place where the roads are an absolute mess and your off roading on pavement (if you know what I mean) then you wont need anything with the pro kit. Just make sure the camber is alligned and such.

you actually have to have your car aligned, take it to a shop that does alignments, when I but mine on the camber angle didn't change that much
it was still within specs. I live in New York and the roads out here just suck, too many potholes,
and so far I have had no problems, the only thing that I had to adjust with the alignment is the toe angle.
I had the springs in since Sept. and my tires are showing no sighns of abnormal wear
