Red face Please review my proposed suspension and brake purchase

The SVT that I recently purchased passed over 125+ thousand miles. The ball joint rubber bushings are broken, the suspension bonces more than I would like it to, the car tends to need more steering input then I think is normal, my rotors are warped and the brake pads material will all be gone very soon.

Below are the items I'm planning on purchasing to address these problems. Please give me your feedback and let me know if if you think these parts are a good choice. I want to try and restore the suspension and braking to it's stage 0 condition.

Thank you

I'd add ss brake lines, how is the inner toe rods? The p/s hose's? Also I'd add poly bushings on the sway bars & change out your front end links. And for sure a good 4 wheel alignment.

The previous owner did replace the inner toe rods/swaybar to control arm bushings.
