I was gonna put two 5000 lumen led light bars for my 60 gallon so 10000 lumen all together would that be enough to sustain coral or do i need more or could i go less. I plan to have mostly soft corals

You should probably watch this video by BRS to see what lighting there is out there. Lights aren't an easy subject to talk about because people have their preferences. Soft corals don't require a lot of light, but they do need specific kind's of lights to thrive and grow.
