Suspension upgrades

I'm going to be buying parts over the next few weeks until I get everything to do the job once. Here's my parts list please add too if I've forgotten anything, or suggest others(with pros/cons)

2008 Limited 5.7 HEMI 132k all stock

Rough Country 2" lift/leveling kit

Bilstein B6 4600 24-186797 Front Shock

Moog upper control arms RK620188
Moog lower control arms RK 621375

Front Differential bushings oem

Moog sway bar bushings

Moog tie rod inner outer ends EV800782/ ES806644/3

Moog Stabilizer rear bar K80468
Moog Stabilizer front K80861

I think that's all.
Anyone ever used Detroit Axle stuff their stuff is half the price of Moog. But the price is scaring me away, seems too cheap. Moog has great reputation.
I'd like the JBA control arms and poly bushings, but price is took much and this rig will only be off road 2-3 times a year.
Also have an exhaust leak/sputter thinking full system manifolds and all but that's way outta budget until the suspension/diff clunk is fixed.

Question Straps

Are those 100 M.P.H. STRAPS? and how many miles on your tires?

Just did some reading up on rear load-leveling shocks. I'm highly considering them.

If I had the money and lived anywhere close, I'd love to buy yours. But I have to make do with what we got.

I put Monroe 58646 on mine in the rear very happy with them even when the wife tows the horse trailer minimal squat. Ride empty is fine.

Just ordered the 58643s. They might go a little better with the 2" lift and give me a slight height boost.
