rebuilding front suspension, need advice

hey, my '99's front suspension is pretty tired, even though i'm only at 74k, needs shocks, upper and lower ball joints, and tie rod ends. i work at a ford dealer so i can get motorcraft ball joints at 25% off, but my buddies tell me to go with moog. any thoughts? also, looking at pro comp 9000 front shocks. any other suggestions? and i'm either cranking the torsion bars or getting the summit leveling kit when i do all this, so will that change my shock needs? any suggestions are appreciated. thanks

Go with MOOG and Bilsteins in all 4 corners.

BTW, I envy your truck. I LOVE that color!
