Suspension upgrade + extras

Hey guys I have an '06 sport with this xreas suspension and I've just put up a gobi rack and a shrockworks front bumper and I think it's time to upgrade.

I've decided to go with OME for the front and superflex in the back. Also I'm going to be changing UCAs, the break disks and pads and the CV axles.

The question is while I'm doing all that what else should I look out for and check for wear and tear?

Service both diffs and transfer case. Check sway bar end links and frame bushings. Check all tie rod ends and ball joints. Changing geometry after so many miles can sometimes cause steering and suspension parts to fail shortly after simply because they have worn the same way for so many years and are now in a totally different position. Just check every moving part now and continue to check every oil change which really should be done anyway.

Awesome. Thanks for the info. It does make sense that all the rubber bushings and connections would need to be checked. I did do my diffs and transfer case not so long ago so I should be good for some time.
