What you need exactly is new struts and coil springs. If you want to take the cheap route just buy an adjustable coil spring setup and use the original struts but I'd reccomend from personal experience to get the hole strut and coil over set. With the adjustables you can set exactly where you want the car to sit and if you go too low or don't like the ride (especially over bumps/pot holes etc.) you can raise it back up. As far as tools the only thing you'll need as far as specialty is a spring compressor, but there's ways around it. I've found if you drop the adjustment as low as it'll go you wont need to compress the spring to get the top cup off. Obviously if you're going to reuse your struts you'll need the compressor to get the stock springs off.
Also as mentioned before a camber kit would be nice. I didn't get one for my acura when I lowered it which created uneven tire wear, but I would recommend it if you want to do it right.
