Lift hardware

So I see lift kits all over the place including things such as brake line extension, bumpstops, rear traction bar bracket, front and rear swaybar links, etc. I know different things are need for different sized lifts. I want to build my lift part by part rather than buy a kit that includes what I née plus random garbage parts. My question is what kind of hardware other than coil springs an shocks would I need for a 2-3 inch lift I would get from OME coils and bilstein 5100 shocks? I figured the track bar bracket was a must. What about the rest? I only plan on kicking my 32" stock tires up to maybe 33" if that matters at all for the bump stops. I want to know what pieces i will need to put it a on and not risk breaking something. Another reason I don't want to buy a kit is I can't get away with spending a lot of money at once but my wife won't notice if it's only a couple hundred here and there. Any advice would help. Thank you.

if you do it piece by piece you are going to spend lots more money. you should look into one of the top quality companies. like teraflex. rancho, are two that come to mind. they do not skimp on quality.

Yah, what green-machine said. I know the Teraflex 2.5" kit comes with everything you absolutely need and nothing that you don't need. I don't like the idea of the rear trackbar drop bracket putting more stress on the factory bracket that it connects to, so I went with an adjustable rear trackbar instead and ditched the bracket. If you're going to do this, then I guess the trackbar bracket is garbage, but you'll still save money by buying the kit. And although they're not absolutely necessary, I also added the front trackbar and front-lower control arms for proper alignment and better handling.
