Baggin my truck questions

First some info on my truck 2000 nbs reg cab short bed I plan on running 22's. After doing some research I've been thinking about going with the thorbeck 4 link and a watts link, is there any reason you guys would suggest different? The reason I'm leaning towards this 4link is because it looks like the main difference between this and more expensive links is that this is not bolt on, but that's not a problem for me. For the front I am planning on running the ekstensive kit that allows you to lay on up to 22's. I just want to get some feedback on these parts and why this would or would not be a good set up to run. I want to do all the research and figure everything out before I start on the truck so everything goes smooth. Thanks you

with 22's, the ekstensive panhard bar would be fine. you wouldn't have to have a lot of lift, so the panhard bar would not move the axle.

Ekstensive is a very reputable company and a lot of people use their 2-link kit. it's a perfectly reliable set up. I however prefer a 4 link whether parallel or triangular.

running the ekstensive upper and lower arms will also be a good set up as well. other than custom built arms, Ekstensive and ART are about the only reputable brands out there for control arm suspension. KP is making control arms now but for the price you could get the other brands.
the panhard bar doesn't limit it. the panhard bar will pull the axle toward the frame rail it is mounted to when you start lifting and lowering the vehicle. with 22's your suspension does not need to travel as much so you won't notice the lateral movement as much as you would with 24's.
