I would use all stock parts and also consider Hotchkis springs for the front. They are only 1.5 inch drop though.

I would recommend using Moog front end parts in a stock configuration. They are excellent quality without breaking the bank. Get the larger sway bar, not the 5/8. I would also recommend using poly bushings. Don't get the red color .They fade and look like crap.Unless the technology has gotten better since I last installed 'em. And of course someone's front disc brake conversion will get you spindles and the brake stuff. I used Master Power for what it's worth.

I am a great believer in keeping these cars mostly stock with some exceptions, so I would use all stock parts with some minor exceptions.
