Front end questions

Hi all, I'm running a 2001 jeep wrangler with a 4.0 motor automatic tranny and a Dana 44 rear and 30 front with 4.10's rear and 3.73's front( I know I'm rebuilding my front next week) anyways I'm deciding to take a look at my front end because I have bad ball joints (got some moog ball joints ready to go in) and I feel like I should try and improve ride quality in nd get more heavier duty parts installed for rock crawling, so where do you guys think I should start?

I have looked at a dropped pitman arm and a heavy duty tie rod kit as well, but is there anything else you guys can recommend? I have a steering stab already on but isn't there a stab you can replace the damper with?

Forget the DPA. Upgraded tie rod (and maybe draglink) are good upgrades for rock crawling. Don't worry about the stabilizer/dampner. They are all pretty much the same. If you have a ride comfort issue consider what shocks you are running and what psi you run in your tires. Other things factor into it, but those are two big ones and easy to adjust.

What he said^^^^

Forget the DPA. It is not required unless you have a trackbar relocation bracket. Adding the DPA only will cause bumpsteer and the TRB is not needed unless you are binding the trackbar at the frame end (very unlikely and usually only happens with a stock TB on a high lift).
