Default Replace shocks, tie rods, and ball joints?

I have a 98 1500 with 5" suspension lift, 5.2 liter, dual steering stabilizers, 315/75/16 Remington mud tires. When pushing down on front bumper there's to much bounce and it clicks as if the bushing is worn out. So I guess its obvious I need new shocks, but not sure about the ball joints or tie rods. There's very little steering wheel shaking at higher speed but not bad,thinking because of the tire size. But you really have to pay attention to the road because those tires pull you which ever way the road is pitched. How do I check the ball joints? I know that I should start with the shocks and then go from there. Good idea? Just learning about lifted trucks now, always had an Avalanche but recently totaled in accident. Check out my pics. Thanks
