Suspension Rebuild/Upgrade Parts

I need some help compiling a parts list for the suspension rebuild on my 94. I want to make sure I'm not missing anything.

upgrades I already have (or am about to buy)

-Eibach 1.5 drop springs
-KYB GR2 shocks
-Addco front/rear sway bar 1&1/4

and this list I found by searching, its somewhat old so I want to make sure everything is included? Most of the parts are moog... are there any parts that I am missing or should be motorcraft instead?

Upper Control Arm
LEFT - INCL BALL JOINT K8596
RIGHT - INCL BALL JOINT K8598
Cam & Bolt Kit K8521 x2

Lower Control Arm
LEFT - INCL BALL JOINT K80053
RIGHT - INCL BALL JOINT K80055


Strut Rod Bushing/Kit MOTORCRAFT Frame Side
Strut Rod Bushing/Kit MOTORCRAFT LCA Side

Tie Rod End Link ES3004RL x2

Rear Suspension

*REAR COMPENSATOR LINK K8594 x2
*Sway Bar Link/Kit K8641 x2
*Upper Control ARM TO FRAME K8562 x2
*Upper Control Arm ARM TO KNUCKLE K8588 x2

Do not use moog strut rod bushings, the ford parts are about the same price and considerably higher quality. I would add some front shock mounts and you are likely to need lower shock bolts as well.

Might want to consider new sway bar links as well. These are the things I went wrong on on my build and had to do it over.

strut rod?

The sway bar links are not part of the bar, mine are bad and rattle like crazy, the addco will not have the links. The frame bushings may be supplied however.

?? Yeah, I'm clueless... which is why I've been glazing over all the old threads to try and find a definitive list (a sticky would be awesome). I have never worked on suspension before and I plan on probably having the rebuild work done by a pro. I just want to get all the facts straight and the parts bought before I sacrifice my wallet.

The strut rod is not the sway bar.

Ok, so does the rest of the list look complete? Anything else to add?
