Looking for performance suspension and brakes. Few questions

I have an 07 4.7 two wheel drive and I'm looking to make it into more of a "street" Jeep since I have a Chevy for any off road purposes. I'm lowering it, spacing the wheels 1.5", doing a few engine upgrades (later down the road) and lastly I'm looking for any other suspension/brakes I could benefit from. I want better handling, lower center of gravity, more safety, and good brakes. Any suggestions? What does an anti sway bar do and what different shocks do for me?

I know my Eibach lowering springs are compatible on the Grand Cherokee, but are any of the other parts I'm looking for also cross compatible? (So I can find more options)

Here are the brakes I'm looking at, the springs I'm ordering, and the spacers I'm about to buy.

You're driving a Jeep, not a race car. I don't really believe that slotted or drilled rotors are anything near necessary... in fact they're probably worse.
