Time for Replacing Suspension

Its coming time to start buying parts to make a suspension renewal. My right control arm has a hair crack in it, so every time i hit bumps i can hear sort of a 'bottoming out' noise coming from the front right of the car. it doesnt bottom out, just sounds like metal to metal. so im going to replace the control arms. I also have H&R sport springs to put in. I need to order 1 bump pads. Im also putting in Subman's E420 front sway bar. What else should I order while im replacing things in the suspension. Right now i dont really want to spend money on sport shocks. Any ideas on bushings, or rods? Also where can I get the parts? Is it worth buying control arms from Bekkers? Thanks for the information!

Why don't you buy them here?

FastLane or PartsShop should have everything you need!
The strut tower rubber piece could be replaced. All rubber bushings, steering shock and the idle arm bushings. They are all cheap replacements if you do it yourself.
