Default Riding low, RCA's, and wheel alignment question

I figured this would be the correct sub-forum to post this is since it deals with alignment questions. For those of you that are riding pretty low, are you all using RCA's or adjustable upper and lower control arms to try and correct your camber? I've got my coilovers on order and will be lowering the car shortly after they come in. I'm not planning on slamming it to tuck tire, but am wanting to lower it right above the tire. I'm fairly certain that I will be out of spec when I run the car for an alignment, but I'm wondering if you guys are all using a/m parts to try and correct camber and toe? On my last 2gs, I ran Sage RCA's front and rear, with Figs adjustable lowers and Toe links. I was pretty much able to get my car back into factory specs. I'm wondering if there are certain "Must haves" to correct alignment issues when you're lowered. Basically trying to only buy the essentials, if that makes any sense?

Anybody? I'm wondering if at very least rear toe links? I know toe is what kills tires in most cases, but are the fronts able to get toe back into spec with just the factory stuff?

I'm pretty low. I think youll be fine as far as toe. Right now my caster is what's off. Beside toe arms and upper control arms in the back, i dont have any other parts to correct suspension.
