Planning a suspension overhaul....what else should I changing?

Planning to overhaul my entire suspension in the next month or so (DIY it all except the alignment) and I want to make sure i get everything that makes sense to do while im at it to my 2003 330i with 120k if you can think of something im missing, let me know!

1) OEM ZHP Suspension retrofit kit (Swaybars, Front Control Arms and all 4 shocks/struts)
2) H&R Sport Springs
3) OEM Front Upper Shock/Strut mount
4) Turner "Repair Shop" Rear Shock Tower Mounts
5) Powerflex RTABs
6) Left and Right Lemforder Tie rods

Also: I will be removing/regreasing/reinstalling my 2.5year/30ish K mile old Powerflex FCABs

Front sway links for sure and maybe tie rods. I would suggest M3/HD RTABs and limiters from Turner. Also Turner front strut tower re-inforcement plates. Aftermarket would be much cheaper and better than OEM ZHP? I take it you like factory understeer? I have reused Powerflex CABs but with everything else new it may be worth replacing them also.
