Rebuild advice and suggestions

I知 finally about to start a minor rebuild on my 02 4Runner. What lead me to this was shaking and shuttering when braking, clunking sounds, terrible give in the steering wheel, and just worn out, torn, and bent parts. So I have LCA痴, inner and outer tie rod ends, LBJ痴, both front CV axles, front rotors, calipers, and pads, and 4 new tires on order. As I知 going to replace these next weekend. What should I be prepared for? Everything seems pretty straight forward and simple enough with replacing all of those items. Any special tools required?

A two-arm pitman puller makes the tie rod ends and lower ball joint easier. But a BFH (big, fat hammer) works too but if there's rust you'll be at it for a while. CV axles will take the most time and try and stay OEM for the CV axles and lower ball joints unless you like replacing parts.

The Tundra brake upgrade is stupid easy, just takes a little time. Use quality parts and you'll be pleased on how much better your stopping power is and how much less the ABS system kicks in.

I recommend replacing the sway bar bushings front & back as well as the sway bar end link bushings front and back. It's a very simple job, just a few nuts to take off, no crazy torque specs and it really improves steering response and controls body roll. Energy Suspension sells a good kit that's cheap and works really great: https://www.amazon.com/Energy-Suspen...gateway&sr=8-1. There's a black set, but why get black when there's red :P

Oh, and the rear set: https://www.amazon.com/Energy-Suspen...gateway&sr=8-3
