So I just ordered new steering linkage and some new Moog CC820 springs for the truck. I was also considering replacing the radius arm bushings (again, got cheapies the first time and they have already failed) as well as sway-bar bushings. anything else I should do while I am at it?

Diagrams such as Steering Linkage
The steering linkage, which connects the steering gear sector shaft arm (3590) to the front wheel spindles (3105), is composed of a steering sector shaft arm drag link (3304) and tie rod end (3A130). The steering gear sector shaft arm transfers the steering gear (3504) movements through the steering sector shaft arm drag link and tie rod end to the right and left front wheel spindles.

The F-150, F-250, F-350, Bronco and F-Super Duty Chassis Cab steering linkage have adjustments in both the tie rod end and the steering sector shaft arm drag link.
