I think I may be the "someone" that you were referring to.
The fronts and the mounts are the exact same ones that I installed almost exactly 3 years (60,000 miles) ago, and I would do the same today, if I had to (which, thankfully, I don't). I kept the stock springs, so can't comment on alternatives.
I have not replaced the rears, but probably should, so please report back on how that goes.
In terms of additional items, I would definitely do sway bar end links and sway bar bushings...Once you have it all apart, only takes a little more work to get that done.
The only other item that I tackled was the passenger front lower control arm. The ball joint went bad, and I was getting a light clunking sound that was driving me crazy, but that was more involved/expensive.
