EF Suspension cleanup

The suspension on my EF is due for a bit of a replacment/uprgade i think, so i'm after recommendations of what to replace/change, as well as what brands to use.

I've already lowered it, so the springs are fine, and the rear shocks arent very old but id like to replace it all in one hit, so i was thinking something along the lines of getting new front + rear shocks, new bushes all round, and then getting a suspension specialist to give it the once over and make sure everything else is ok.

Failing that, I may just take it to Pedders (i know a lot of people dont like these guys but id like to see for myself) and have them do a full job - including new springs etc etc. Has anyone had them do this, or can anyone think of anything I've missed?

Cheers.
