Death Wobble/Upgrading front end

Hey just need some input here. i have attached my part order list and just want to know if you guys think this will work for the death wobble. rockauto.com is where i am planning on ordering because they normally have the cheapest prices. but if any of you know a better place please tell. but another thing is the ball joints i am getting are moog. But after reading into another death wobble post some guys were talking about cambor/castor. i can purchase an adjustable balljoint for the cambor/castor but i do not have any lift and was wondering if that falls into the lifting category?and have know experience with adjuting angles?
98 tj all stock.

Time out. No lift and DW? Have you checked the following:

Trac-bar blots tight?
Tires Balanced?
Front end to spec's?
Control arm bolts tight?

Did you check your ball joints?
Did you check your tire rod ends?

Bingo boss, before you go spending a bunch of money check some things out on your own. Especially if you have no lift and stockish sized tires.

Also make sure your tires or balanced well.

lol slow down guys, these are all items that need to be replaced anyways. trust me im going to take it to the garage and scope out the situation but like i said in the post this is mostly trying to get rid of the death wobble but also an upgrade. its a 98 tj i bought from a guy that didnt do shit to it,preventative maintenance, oil changes and to top it off he drove two winterS with no/ripped up top. im just now getting around to fixing it up. it only has 70k miles but has a knock (hopefully lifters). i replace the top with a bestop soft with tinted windows, bought all new side bars front and back bumper(smitty/rugged ridge)because the sides were rusted in half.looks like im gonna dyi herculiner because the carpet is shot and signs of rust underneath. so this will be the first post of many.
