Nice idea, get all in one place but:
You didn't list the front coil springs
The rear sway bar needs these bushings (2 per car):
124 326 01 81
Some are using three bump spring pads front.
Its a good idea to inform prospective buyers that the height of the car is somewhat subjective, what one person likes is not what someone else likes or needs. YMMV.
For example 124 321 29 04 is third stiffest in the available series of 4 springs and seems most commonly used but someone might want otherwise. For Autocross or something, or if carrying a lot of gear in the trunk or rear seat passengers a different approach might be necessary.

I show 124 323 51 85 as an outer bushing.
I caution one to watch out using just a VIN# because a dealer will try to use the "point system". I once let a Parts counterman at the local dealership tell me what was available for a 300D and he came up with something alltogether different than what gsxr and other ShopForum members are using, so to avoid having to perform a rework later to change out something small like a Spring pad, or something large like Springs, its better to decide at the onset exactly what will work properly and for that you need to avoid using parts other than OEM, like H&R springs etc. as they are not likely to go together with a predicted outcome. Of course if you like experimenting with chassis work then go for it!

A look at gsxr's excellent work is a must for anyone contemplating a 124 suspension upgrade: http://www.w124performance.com/images/W124_suspension/124_suspension.txt

Yes, it appears Roy left out some of the parts in his list above.
It should include:

124 326 01 81 bushing x2
124 323 51 85 outer bushing x2

There are 3 different Sportline LCA bushing kits. The correct one is based on vin#.

Mercedes does calculate spring pads using a "point system" based on the weight of options. We usually sell the thin pads because most people want to lower their car a little.
