Suspension update and axle upgrades with questions

So what started with a simple bushing upgrade has spiraled out of control into a rebuild and upgrade
- RTE Fab 2" Springs
- New OME shocks
- All bushings replaced to include isolator and spring securing ring
- RTE castor corrected radius arms
- New OME Dampner
- RTE drag link and tie rod, with new ball joints
- Adjustable pan hard

Now looking at the axles, figure might as well do this while everything is getting refurbed so looking at this set up
- Rovertracks HD axle and CV kit from lucky8
- Front and rear Ashcroft lockers with 4.12 ring and pinion either pick up the ready to go package from lucky8 or pick it up from Ashcroft when I return from the deployment.

Anything I am forgetting or should adjust? I am curious if I need the lower shock mounts to account for the raised spring height? Any insight is appreciated as always.

Id double check the swivel preload while your in there. Also since your going with an air locker, make sure your breather is clear.
