Suspension Upgrade - Parts to Keep

This is just a reference post for any Versa owners looking to upgrade to coilover suspension, or another aftermarket suspension. The question of "what do I need to keep" gets asked often and little info is given from most suspension manufacturers. This is not a "how to" on installing coilovers, just a list of the OEM parts you need to reuse or replace alongside upgrading your suspension.

do i need shorter shocks for the Tanabe 1" lowering springs or is stock ok?

also looking at Rev9 coilovers - do i need additional hardware like toe/camber adjustment if I only do the highest height setting on them? (1" lower than stock, same as Tanabe)

if someone has these installed would appreciate some advice
