Gonna do brakes and what else??

Alright guys so i have an 04 f350 cc/lb dually and i need to do brakes all around and was wondering whatelse to check while im in there like hubs etc. i am planning on doing the front axle u joints while im in there so if someone could please provide a parts list on that that would be great!

im thinking of just running motorcraft brakes as i get a discount at ford. these are the prices i got
front pads $67.90
front rotors $144.46 per side
back pads $67.96
back rotors $135.96 per side
slide pins and boots $23.74 per wheel

i do have what seems to be a clunk noise when i turn at low speeds almostsounds like body shifting?? i did do the ball joints about 30 000km ago.
any info and help would be greately appreciated

If you do the u-joints, you'll have to redo all the axle seals that were done when the ball joints were done. Check your sway bar bushings and link bushings for the clunk noise.

Rotors seem high to me. Check these guys out -----> Brake Rotors Discs Pads Brakes Cross Drilled & Slotted I just put the slotted and dimpled rotors and their pads on an 05 F-250 and the guy really likes them. Najaf4life just put them on his Ex. and is pleased. You can get all 4 rotors and pads for around $400

I found on my 03 that the rear backing plate for the brakes is rusted through. You may want to check yours since you'll be in there. Also make sure that the brake pins glide smoothly and are lubricated.
