Suspension parts list?

OK so I know that my lower ball joints are slowly going out due to the annoying squeaking noise when ever I go over a bump or push down on my fenders. So Ive decided to go ahead and update my entire front susupension system
I consider myself mechanically inclined (aircraft mechanic) but I just dont know the names of the parts I need/want to replace
So basically what Im looking for is a list of parts that would be smart to go ahead and replace/update while Im down there.

Check tie rods and wheel bearings. Lift the car up and press up, down, and side to side to see if the bearings are good. You have upper and lower ball joints. Which are bad?

While your in there you might want to do lowering springs and shocks. When I put mine in I had 2 broken springs.

Didnt know there were also upper but pretty sure its the lower, they are at the end of the a-arm directly behind the rotors. When I look under there they are dirty/rusty looking and I spray them with some lube and they stop squeaking for about a week.
