Looking to upgrade suspension and brakes. Any help?

Well I drive a 2007 Commander 4.7L 2wd, but you guys have always been more help than the guys over at JeepCommanderForum so I've come to you again! I'm looking to make it into more of a "street" Jeep since I have a Chevy for any off road purposes. I'm lowering it, spacing the wheels 1.5", doing a few engine upgrades (later down the road) and lastly I'm looking for any other suspension/brakes I could benefit from. I want better handling, lower center of gravity, more safety, and good brakes. Any suggestions? What does an anti sway bar do and what would different shocks do for me? Etc

I found the Eibach lowering springs because I heard they are the same springs as one of the Grand Cherokees, but are any of the other parts I'm looking for also cross compatible? (So I can find more options) And is that even true about the springs being the same?

Here are the brakes I'm looking at, the springs I'm ordering soon, and the spacers I'm about to buy.

Thanks for any and all feedback. Any little comment is appreciated!

I wouldnt get ceramic pads

You could also do the SRT brake conversion. Its expensive. The SRT eibach and SRT bwoody/roadmagnet springs also fit your commander.

What sway bars do you have?

Ok sweet, thanks for saving me money on brakes ha. What's your reasoning for no ceramic though?

I'm glad to hear about the springs. I was getting a headache trying to figure that out haha. I think I'm going with the Eibach non SRT springs (based on your thread outlining all suspension parts) but I've also heard great things about the H&R compared to the Eibach. The problem is that I don't know which Eibachs they were comparing them to ha

And I have no clue about the sway bars dude. Stock? Ha I didn't know a thing about sway bars till yesterday. Would it even be an upgrade to buy the SRT sway bars?

Thanks for the help by the way, it's greatly appreciated. Also, I think I follow you on Instagram out of some major coincidence. Your Jeep being so nice makes so much sense now
