best/toughest parts and what to replace...

ok, so the trucks goin on 114k so i was gonna replace some parts. im in need of front suspension components so im gonna get those for sure. ik moog makes an excelent part so im def getting their in/out TREs and UCAs w/ BJs. and im gettin KYB shocks, and some kind of brakes. those im decided on but i was wondering what other stuff needs replacing after this many miles and what brand? ive got new CVs and hub assemblies and got them at advanced auto. do yall think theyre any good? hub assem. were around 400 a pair and the CVs were 65 or 75 ea. any suggestions are appreciated.

Just keep your receipt for the hubs and cvs most of the time parts like that come with a warranty and a receipt will make exchanging them for new ones a lot easier.

Might as well take teh weekend off, pull those front wheels off and replace your upper, lower, tie rods, seals, bearings, boots - anything you can get your hadns at while its all off! I'll be doing the same switchup here in about a month.. And as everyone else says.. Moog it!!

bearings and CVs are less than a yr old. and lower BJs were replaced by the dealer before i bought it almost a yr ago. after i get back from FL im gettin in/out TREs and UCAs that come w/ upper BJS. those are gonna be moog. gettin kyb monomax shocks all around. those are a deffinate ASAP. soon after im gettin EBC ultimax rotors w/ a pad of some kind (not sure but was lookin into hawks). and gettin an allignment of course. then next oil change im gettin new plugs/wires and air filter. hopefully i get better fuel eco after the plugs/wires. might need new calipers if all this doesnt fix this clickin/crackin noise when braking/turning left... dno what else i NEED. but i sure as hell can think of stuff i WANT. lol
