Icon3 Spring Tech component(s) upgrade + BL questions

Two years back I bought a Spring Tech lift kit (shocks, spindles, UCAs, etc.) and now I'm looking to add a BL and while I'm at it replace \ upgrade some of the Spring Tech components. I already know that I'm going to replace the POS shocks. They've been squeaking. My questions are:

1. What other components should I look at replacing or servicing? Ball joints?
2. I need longer brake lines. Any links?
3. Any part numbers for the correct length shocks? I don't care about brand or cost at this time. Just looking to get part numbers right now.
4. Am I missing or not thinking about other things I may need?

1. balljoints, check your tie rod ends too.

3. well....since spindles don't move the shock mounting locations, longer than stock shocks shouldn't be needed...

Shane - Stock shocks? The height of the truck is now 6in front and 4in rear. Shouldn't I be looking for the same length shocks?
