Front end suggestions

2001 F350 DRW. My truck is at 204k on the ticker and it's time to redo the front end with all new stuff. Shocks, hubs, bearings, ball joints, stabilizers, steering box, etc etc. This truck will be hanging around for another 400k miles or more so I'm trying to get it on par with stock or slightly better then stock stuff. It's main purpose will be to tow a race car and taking engines to and from the machine shop. I've never done anything suspension wise on a diesel or on a 1 ton for that matter so asking for help and suggestions on what is the best bang for my buck to put on here to get this thing running nice again.

With 1100lbs of motor sitting there you will be replacing random front end stuff as long as you own the truck.
I would replace whatever parts are showing wear now, and wait until other parts wear out to replace them.
