Going ahead w/ Fortune - What else?

So - I'm redoing my 2007 Z4MC's suspension from Bilstein / Eibach to Fortune 500 coilovers. What other parts do the veterans here recommend I replace at the same time?

Use case: Street only, summer only, streets are choppy as hell, hence the change in suspension - that is to say, the Eibachs are too low, the Bilsteins are not valved right for these streets.

Other than taking sharp impacts, car feels great - suspension feels solid, no looseness or play in the factory original bushings that are still in place. 60K kilometers / 37K miles on it.
  • Strongstrut FSTB - mainly to reinforce the shock towers.
  • Rogue RSMs - seem to be respected?
  • ... are there any other obvious preventative maintenance pieces that should be done?


I don't think (based on my intended use) I need...
  • RTAB limiters
  • Poly bushings anywhere - subframe, RTABs, etc.
  • ??

Thanks in advance for your advice / input. I'm the first to admit that I don't wrench, don't know a tonne about suspension, and street drive for sheer pleasure only - so if this comes across as a newbie post, well, it is.
