replacing front end

My truck is a high km vehicle and I'm having front end issues so I'm going to replace the entire front suspension, ball joints, etc.
Could anyone give me a detailed list of what I need to do the job so I don't have to place multiple orders and any other things I should be aware of?
Also, I need new front hubs, which ones should I go with, I don't care if they are automatic or not, but would like em cheap as possible.
Thanks

Inner tie rods (pitman arm tie rod), outer tie rods, redhead steering gear.

One more thing. I'm buying XRF parts because its free shipping to Canada and is about $400 cheaper than if I bought in the local store but on the ebay ad, it lists all the compatible models. It doesn't say anything about the 7.3 though.
Are the gas trucks front end different than the diesels? Sorry if its a stupid question but I wasn't even asked what engine I had when I went to the parts store.
Thanks
