1. Every crew member must have a loyal status 2. You must have researched every upgrade for your ship (offensive+defensive) 3. Complete all side missions and all resource gathering you want to do BEFORE starting the IFF quest. 4. Complete IFF quest, after completion the only thing you should do is Legion's Loyalty quest. 5. After Legion's loyalty quest, pick the option to immediately go after the crew
6. Send your crew members as follows: tali in vents grunt escort crew back garrus leading first secondary squad Miranda leading second secondary squad Jack doing the barrier bubble
After doing everything listed here, you should get the full, complete, EVERYONE survives ending (including non-party-members).
Obviously this is not the only way to do it, but it should guarantee success.
I sent: Tali in vents Thane escort crew back (accidently) Garrus leading first secondary squad Grunt leading secondary secondary squad Mirando doing the bubble
When it asked for the secondary secondary squad, I thought it was asking for who was going to lead Chakwas back, so I picked Grunt on accident :(. It was all fine up to the point of rescuing Chakwas, but after that it all fell apart.
This is the fate of my crewmembers: Garrus died from a swarm of those flying things right before we got in the door. He was one of my favorite characters =[ Grunt died after barely making it through the door with the 2nd team Mordin was just shown dead after everyone was running away
I might just reload from an old save and do it the right way.
You said do the Suicide Mission right after the crew members are captured. Does it matter if I do sidequests before? Because I was kind of messing around with other stuff before I did the final quest. Is that why Chakwas said we could've saved everyone if we got there earlier? --- Spit so many verses sometimes my jaw twitches One thing this party could use is more...*ahem* booze

Since you did not go after the crew right after they were captured, that is why you lost some of them.
