Question Suspension Improvements?

I live in a slightly rural area and the roads are rough. On top of that, I have to drive back and forth over railroad tracks several times a day going back and forth to work. As a result, my suspension is shot. I actually have a rattle up under my front end that I've had checked out a couple of times but no one knows what's causing it. I know that I probably need new shocks and struts but I'm wondering if anyone can give me suggestions on how to improve my suspension for the rough roads?

~Shock/struts, X2 balljoints, tie rod,bumpsteer kit, and caster camber plates.
-On a more economic route have a shop look/listen
Good Luck

I'd go with a SR strut tower brace and rear strut brace.

They helped my car with bumpy roads all stock suspension.

Softer bumper stops might help as well soak up some harshness...along with some better shocks and struts

Yeah that's what I'm about to get. Hopefully they work because mine front end is super clunky
