Default Question about suspension

Hey CL fam! It's time for me to remove the Tein Flex's from my car. With the roads in my area I'd like to go with a shock/spring combo.
1. I was thinking Blisten Sport Shocks and H&R Lowering Springs. Good combo?
2. Do I need to buy the KYB Shock Mount and Shock Boot also? I'm thinking due to the car being a 2003 and that part never being replaced that it'll be a good idea.
3. Also my mechanic said my sway bar bushing is causing the squeaking noise that I'm hearing over speed bumps. Can anyone recommend me any sway bar bushing and steering rack bushing just to be safe? I have Daizen sway bars on the car now so I was thinking Daizen sway bar & steering rack bushings but if anyone has anything better in mind, let me know.
4. Last thing, my passenger seat slightly vibrates at 80MPH+ and my mechanic said it's the rear tie rod but didn't specify if it's the inner or rear tie rod that needs to be replaced. Anyone familiar with this issue? If so, was in the inner or outter tie rod that needed to be replaced?

you'll need shocks with a shorter stroke for the shorter springs. bilsteins are stock replacements

grease your bushings.
