I don't have any of the parts you want, but since you said advice appreciated, here's some advice:
- I'm not sure Koni Reds will handle coil-overs all that well. That's what I used for my first coil-over setup about 20 years ago and the setup was pretty heavily under-damped and rode like garbage. Admittedly, that was with 10" 300# springs, so going with 250# springs would be a step in the right direction, but even with those you may find the Reds just don't have enough damping to control the springs.
- Opinions about brake pads are like belly buttons, everyone's got one. Personally, from my experience, I would say Hawk HPS are over-priced garbage. There are plenty of good street performance pads available for 1/2 as much. One of my favorites over the past couple years is the ACDelco Professional Grade semi-metallics, which (as far as I can tell) are just re-branded Raybestos Professional Grade semi-metallics. Rockauto.com has the ACDelcos on wholesaler close-out right now for a whopping $8.94 (the Raybestos are $33).
'89 GT convertible, N/A 357W, MM front susp w/425# coil-overs and Koni D/As, MM TA/PB rear setup (Koni Yellows, 390-430# springs), Stoptech 332mm / 12" Baers, MM 6 point rollbar, Maier 1.5" flared fenders & quarters, 18x9.5" front/18x10.5" rear Enkei RPF-1s (street), 18x10" CCW C-10s (track), etc...
