Front End parts

Im having bump steering and wandering issues with my 2002 TJ. Its all stock now after taking off a 2" spacer lift. Im going to start replacing some front end parts to correct it. what should I start with? I was thinking new Sway Bar Links ,adjustable track bar ( my axle is shifted an inch), ball joints and maybe tire rod ends. what would you guys start with?

check the trac bar bushings, and tighten the heck out of the frame side trac bar end.
control arm bushings, pretty much any movement in any of the front end parts will contribute to DW, but dont start replacing parts that arent bad. unless your check book has no limit. look close and you will find the problem. also a misalignment issue will not help either. tire balance has been a problem for some people , tat combined with some of the other stuff I've mentioned could causeit. its usually a combination of a few things together that cause DW.
