DW fix? Replacing ball joints. Replace other bushings with poly?

I want to eliminate the DW on my '06 TJ. I already plan to replace the ball joints check the other components for wear and or misalignment.
Should I plan to replace track bar and tie rod bushings with poly units? If so, what is a good source to purchase them?
Thanks for any input you may offer.

I'd check the upper control arm bushings at the frame and at the axle end (particularly the axle end).
