Opinions/Suggestions:Vendors Welcome

I have a 2012 JKU. I bought it last year brand new from the stealership. It came with a Rusty's 3 1/2 lift ( I know, I know), 35" Mickey's & 20" XD's. It does have a Rusty's track bar. It is a daily driver & has about 7100 miles on it. Just dropped it off at the stealership yesterday for a new left rear brake line ( rubbing on shock, no problem) & also for the DW. They said they are replacing the steering stabilizer (as usual) because it was leaking ( here we go). That DW was throwing me all over the road. It only happened at speeds under 40 mph & on the same bumps that I hit daily.
I am going start by replacing the upper & lower CA's, tie rod, drag link. Should I replace the sway bars & links (bushings are good) while I am at it? The links are Rustys. I will check the track bar bolt holes and the rest of the bushings when I get it back along with any play with the components. I have read Planmans & other write up's and got the basics. I have all the tools needed & can do the work myself.
Which brands & vendors do you guy's recommend? Vendor's please chime in. I am on a tight budget. Can't do much wheeling since I have had 3 back surgeries & a possible fusion on the way.

I see absolutely no reason to replace the sway-bars or links. Make sure that the front links are the correct length to keep the sway-bar as level as possible, but no reason whatsoever to replace those components.
