What else do I need?

So I am putting a Superlift 4" suspension lift on my 77 CJ5 so I'm replacing the springs, u-bolts, spring bushings, and shocks. I also ordered new shackles, shackle frame bushings, drop pitman arm, and front sway bar quick disconnects and bushings.
Is there anything else I should replace? I'm looking for this to be used mostly on the highway with minimum off road use on our farm while running at least 33's.

James, you're setup is similar to mine,with the same lift. The only other thing I would recommend would be the shackle hanger that bolts the frame. Those bolts may be weak. I replaced the bolts in mine when installing the lift; but after a thousand miles or so the hanger itself broke. Wasn't hard to repair,but would be easier ahead of time.
