Replacement parts for an 11 year old truck

Hey guys, I am relatively new to Ranger's but I'm really new to cars this old. I'd like to know what I should replace on the truck per maintenance items. The truck rides a bit rough, although it didn't ride much different with the stock 14" wheels. Bushings? What other wear items should I look at?

I've replaced the following:
Leaf Springs
Shackles
Shackle Brackets
Front Shocks and Rear Shocks
Oil filter and Oil
Fuel Filter
Spark Plugs
Light Bulbs in the entire truck
Coolant Flush

Any other suggestions? Possibly to make it ride a bit better and not to feel like it's falling apart when you drive over rough pavement or potholes?

what kind of shocks did you put on it. those have alot to do with ride quality. also did you check anything in the front end, such as balljoints, tie rod ends, wheel bearings, stabilizer links etc.

Ford just put on stock shocks. I haven't taken anything in yet for anyone to look at, I've been out of a job for 8 months and afraid to see what they might say!
