ideally, it would be nice to drop the front ifs dif down to accommodate the longer travel and lift of the new front struts. yes you will lose a small amount of ground clearance. having a tonne of rear articulation isnt always going to help if you encounter an obstacle that requires a little more in the front.
the next step would be the upper control arms and possibly some extended steering knuckles to help maintain proper camber and steering angles.
