front end rebuild parts suggestions

Hey guys and gals. Got the news recently I need a complete front end rebuild: idler and pitman arms, inner and outer tie rods, upper and lower ball joints. Exploring my options, as I was shocked at what I was quoted to have it done. I was a mechanic in a previous life and have plenty of tools and knowledge, so I'd prefer to spend a little more on parts and do it myself.

Firstly ...

I have a 04 z71 silverado. Ok, so I'm looking a the Rough Country 6in lift. alot of people say that if you raise it that high I'll have problems with it and whatnot.

Creaking rear susension noise

Got a 2014 Silverado LTZ Z71 1500 crew. From day one I have had this creaking noise from the rear of the truck. Push up and down on the bumper and you can hear it clearly. Sounds like a rusty door hinge or an old box spring. Seams to be getting worse. Got an appointment Monday at the dealer. Any ideas what it could be before I get a spin job from chevy.

Power Steering Problems

Hey all so here is my problem. I took my 04 Silverado to get aligned and the shop I go to said they couldn't get it aligned to factory specs as my I shaft in the steering needs to be replaced. However since then my truck refuses to turn right with power steering and only does power steering to the left. Any ideas?
